Easy Sesame Chicken

Sesame chicken is one of my favorite things to order Chinese take-out. I can’t say whether or not this is authentic sesame chicken, but I can say that my kids (minus the vegetarian) gobbled it up.  I’m also guessing it’s a lot healthier than the take-out version. And it is so quick and easy to put together!  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.
