Sesame Chicken w/ White RiceMy favorite food to eat is typically Italian food, but if I am wanting to pick something quick up to eat that isn't fast food I will always go for Chinese take-out. Sesame Chicken is always my go to item, but I have always wanted to learn how to make it myself. From what I read it seems that Sesame chicken was just taken from General Tso's chicken and altered and is typically just served in the English-speaking world.
1c white rice (cooked)
12oz chicken breasts (1" Dices)1/4c Soy Sauce
2tsp Sesame Oil
1Tbsp Sesame Seeds
Cook rice according to package directions.
Dredge chicken in flour (and pepper if desired).
Heat oil in pan over medium heat. Add chicken.
Cook until golden brown on the outside and no longer pink on the inside.
Combine soy sauce and sugar in a bowl or cup.
Remove chicken from pan.
Pour soy sauce and sugar mixture into pan and simmer until sugar is dissolved (about 3 minutes).
Add sesame oil and honey and stir to combine.
Add cooked chicken back to pan and stir to coat.
Simmer to reduce sauce until thick and sticky.
Serve hot over rice and add sesame seeds if desired.
