Sesame chicken is one of my favorite things to order when we get Chinese take-out. In fact, I kind of judge Chinese restaurants on how good their sesame chicken is. This better-for-you version is a snap to put together, and it’s easily adapted to sneak in a few veggies if you’d like.
I can’t say whether or not this is authentic sesame chicken, but I can say that my husband and kids gobbled it up. Which makes it a winner in my book!
And as much as I love anything deep fried, I really like that this version isn’t fried. Which means it’s a lot healthier than the take-out version. As an added bonus, it is so quick and easy to put together! It’s definitely a staple in our weeknight meal rotation.
If you’d like to add vegetables, do that a few minutes before the chicken is cooked through. We like to serve this over rice, but it’s delicious on it’s own if you’re looking for a low-carb option.
