Sesame Chicken

IMG_5856

This is just another one of those experiments that ended up working out really well. This is a great savory dish that really hit the spot for my husband and I. The chicken stays nice and tender from the marinade and sautéing it. It’s a great dish to serve guests, or if you are just wanting a good meal!

I was making this one to see if I wanted to share it on a local cooking tv show. I ended up using my lime chicken recipe, only because it fit better for the theme of the show, not because this one’s taste wasn’t up to par.

The ingredients are simple and you don’t even have to let it marinate if you don’t want to. You can simply soak the chicken for a minute in the mixture and continue on with the recipe. It is a recipe that has some give to it, which makes it nice to make!
