DirectionsIn a medium bowl, mix the cornstarch and water into a paste. Add the chicken pieces and toss well to coat.
Heat the oil in a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat until very hot. Add the chicken and stir-fry until it is cooked through and lightly browned, 4 to 5 minutes.
Add the chilis and minced ginger and stir-fry for another minute.
Stir in the honey, soy sauce and vinegar and cook for 1 minute or so, until the sauce is slightly thickened. Sprinkle with the lemon zest and heat through, about 30 seconds.
