I always get comments from people saying, “you make a lot of recipes with chicken and turkey.” Why yes, yes I do. I don’t care for beef. It’s not that we never have it. The boys will eat beef burgers and other things while I have my ground chicken or turkey. Most recipes on here are interchangeable with beef or chicken or even pork (I don’t care for pork either). Just like this one. You could totally do this with some type of beef or pork instead chicken.
There, now that we have covered my dislike for beef and why I rarely post recipes using them, let’s move on to Sesame Chicken!
Sesame chicken has always been my favorite in Asian cuisine. Though very yummy, I couldn’t even tell you the last time we ordered out for Chinese. When you’re trying to eat better, fried, greasy, sweet saucy food isn’t on the list of meals one regularly consumes.
In comes this wonderful dish made with fresh ingredients that I can actually pronounce and I actually know what is in it. Start with the light sauce that is big on flavors but not on the bad stuff.
This Sesame Chicken is just sweet enough, and you’ll fall in love with the batter that gives each piece of chicken a nice crunch. Best of all, you can make this recipe in under 30 minutes, and I bet you have most, if not all, of the ingredients already on hand.
Go check. I’ll wait!
