Healthy Sesame Chicken

Surprise! I took a short (unintentional) blogging vacation! I’ve been busy, and wasn’t feeling very inspired to write. But I’m back now, and hope to post more regular updates this week! Today I’m sharing a recipe I recently made that was SUPER delicious. It’s one of several I’ve made in the last few weeks that I originally found on The Way To His Heart blog. So for today enjoy Healthy Sesame Chicken!

Healthy Sesame Chicken

From: The Way To His Heart

Ingredients:

1/2 cup unbleached flour or 1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1/4 tsp salt

1/8 tsp ground black pepper

4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves, cut into medium sized pieces

1/4 cup reduced sodium soy sauce, use less if you have a sensitivity to salt

1/4 cup sugar

1/2 tsp dark sesame oil

2 Tbsp sesame seeds, toasted

1/4 cup chopped fresh scallions (both green and white)

Instructions:

In a gallon-size plastic bag, combine flour, salt, and pepper. Add chicken, seal bag, and shake well to coat.

Coat a large nonstick skillet with nonstick spray and warm over medium-high heat. Add chicken to skillet and cook, stirring, for 3 to 4 minute, or until no longer pink. Transfer to a plate.

Reduce heat to medium. Combine soy sauce and sugar in skillet. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the sugar dissolves, about 1 to 2 minutes max. Add oil and sesame seeds. Add chicken and scallion. Toss and serve immediately.

Notes:

I didn’t have any scallion so I used white onion instead.

Thoughts:

This recipe was pretty easy to make and the chicken had a lot of flavor. I added a store bought spring roll to this dish and ended up eating way more than I should have. It also re-heated great the next day as leftovers!
