Easy Sesame Chicken

Sesame chicken is one of my favorite things to order when we get Chinese take-out. I can’t say whether or not this is authentic sesame chicken, but I can say that my husband and kids gobbled it up. I love that it’s not deep fried, and I’m guessing it’s a lot healthier than the take-out version. As an added bonus,  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, but it’s delicious on it’s own.
