Tonight I made Sesame Chicken. When I lived in Michigan there was a great Chinese restaurant that served sesame chicken and it was so good! This is my attempt at satisfying the craving for it and it does an awesome job. Plus it's a lot healthier than the version from the restaurant - that was fried.
I was able to make this whole meal in about 30 minutes. So it's definitely a great weeknight meal! I made some stir-fry veggies in a separate pan and served it all over a bed of rice. You can use any veggies or rice you like.
6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts; cut into strips or bite sized pieces
1 TB olive oil
1/4 cup honey (I use a local honey)
1/4 cup soy sauce or tamari sauce
1/2 cup water
1 TB cornstarch
1 tsp ground ginger
1 TB toasted sesame seeds
Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat.
Cook chicken for about 6-8 minutes, or until no longer pink.
Mix together honey, soy sauce, water, cornstarch and ginger. Wisk until no cornstarch lumps appear.
Pour sauce into skillet with chicken.
Cook until sauce thickens slightly. You can add more water if sauce gets too thick.
Sprinkle with sesame seeds.
Cover and simmer for 10 minutes or until chicken starts to soak up the sauce.
