Sesame Chicken

Doesn’t that title just make you hungry? I came across this recipe on Pinterest and, of course, I had to share it. It’s so simple to make and tastes delicious!

For this recipe you will need:

1/2 cup brown rice (I used white rice.)
1/4 cup honey
2 Tbsp. sesame seeds
2 Tbsp. soy sauce
1 garlic clove, minced
1 egg white
2 Tbsp. cornstarch
2 small chicken breasts (12oz), cut into 2″ pieces
salt and papper
1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
2 green onions, chopped
2 cups broccoli florets (I used a steam-able bag of broccoli.)

Prepare rice according to the package directions.

Combine honey, sesame seeds, soy sauce, and garlic together in a small bowl and then set aside.

Season chicken pieces with salt and pepper and then add to egg white mixture and toss to evenly coat.

DSC02006In a small saucepan, steam broccoli until crisp tender, then set aside. (Or throw your bag of broccoli in the microwave for the desired time. =]) 

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat, then carefully add chicken. Cook for 3-4 minutes a side, or until cooked through.

DSC02007Turn off the heat and remove the skillet from the burner. Add prepared sauce and green onions and toss to combine. Stir in broccoli, then scoop mixture into bowls over cooked rice.
