Tangor-Ginger Chicken Recipe

Ingredients with Measurements:
- 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 1/2 cup freshly squeezed tangor juice (a hybrid of tangerine and orange)
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 1/4 cup honey
- 2 tablespoons grated fresh ginger
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1 tablespoon water
- Sesame seeds, for garnish
- Sliced green onions, for garnish

Special equipment needed:
- Large mixing bowl
- Whisk
- Large skillet or wok
- Tongs
- Measuring cups and spoons

Step-by-step instructions:

1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the tangor juice, soy sauce, honey, grated ginger, minced garlic, red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper.

2. Add the chicken breasts to the bowl and toss to coat in the marinade. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, or up to 4 hours.

3. Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat.

4. Remove the chicken from the marinade and discard the excess marinade. Add the chicken to the skillet and cook for 5-6 minutes per side, or until cooked through.

5. In a small bowl, whisk together the cornstarch and water. Add the mixture to the skillet and stir until the sauce thickens, about 1-2 minutes.

6. Serve the chicken hot, garnished with sesame seeds and sliced green onions.
