One-pan baked gluten-free sticky honey garlic chicken recipe is 100% gluten free and not fried in a frying pan for even a moment. Tender pieces of chicken are lightly breaded in a homemade spiced coating and then drizzled in coconut oil and a 5-ingredient sticky honey garlic sauce and then baked to perfection.
In a large ziploc bag, combine the arrowroot starch, 1/2 TBSP onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper and mix well. In another large ziploc bag, pour in the rice flour. Set these two bags aside.
Dip the cubed chicken pieces into the egg and allow the excess to drip off. Then place the chicken pieces into the bag with the rice flour, zip the bag up tightly, shake the contents until evenly covered in the flour and then remove and place the pieces inside the bag with the arrowroot starch mixture and do the same shaking technique as before.
While the chicken is baking, combine all of the sticky honey garlic sauce ingredients together in a medium bowl. Once the 45 minutes is up, pour the sauce overtop the chicken and stir to make sure that the chicken pieces are entirely covered in the sauce.
Place any chopped vegetables you would like cooked with the dish into the baking dish and stir. Cook for another 5-10 minutes or until the chicken is fully cooked and the sauce starts to thicken and turn into a glaze.
Remove from oven and serve while still warm. The sauce will thicken slightly more while cooling.
