Sesame Chicken

This is a family favorite. We usually have this served over brown rice. You can adjust the amount of red pepper flakes to your liking.

This recipe actually won a recipe contest in January that was sponsored by Amelia’s Aprons. I won an apron!

Sesame Chicken

6 chicken breasts--boneless works best
¼ cup honey
¼ cup soy sauce
½ cup cool water
1 T cornstarch
1 t ginger
1 t red pepper flakes
1 T sesame seeds

Cut the chicken into strips. Sauté in a skillet sprayed with cooking spray until no longer pink.

Whisk together honey, soy sauce, water, cornstarch, ginger, and red pepper flakes. Pour over chicken. Cook until slightly thickened. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.

Cover and simmer 10 minutes.

Yummy! I LOVE Sesame Chicken, but have never attempted it at home! I will have to give this a try. Too bad I'm out of Soy Sauce or I'd make it tonight!
