I actually like this better than take out sesame chicken. No gross fried breading, the sauce has more flavor, it’s healthier than ordering out and cheaper!
The best part…
Drum roll please….
It’s ready in less time than delivery. Seriously, it took me less than 30 minutes from start to finish. Boom! That is what I call a win-win situation.
Adapted from Gimme Some Oven.
- 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts(trimmed and cut into 1 inch pieces)
- salt and pepper
- 3 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1 teaspoon cornstarch
- 1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions
- 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
- 1 teaspoon sesame seeds
- olive oil
- Steamed broccoli(optional)
- rice or quinoa for serving
Heat a little olive oil or non-stick spray over medium-high heat in a large skillet. Season chicken with salt and pepper then add to hot pan. Cook for 4-6 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the chicken has cooked through and starting to turn golden brown.
While the chicken is cooking, whisk together the soy sauce, vinegar, honey, garlic, ginger and cornstach until combined.
When the chicken is cooked through, add the green onions and soy sauce mixture to the pan and stir immediately to coat the chicken.
The sauce will thicken fairly quickly.
Stir in the sesame oil, then remove from heat. Stir in some steamed broccoli for extra health benefits(optional). Serve over rice or quinoa. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.
This recipe is so good and easy. It will definitely be in the regular rotation.
