No Take-Out Required


Who enjoys eating Chinese take-out? I know we do! Occasionally,
My family and I love going to our favorite Chinese restaurant. But we too try to be frugal and very often cook our own food. So, as usual, lol I did what I do best, and that is preparing another tasty meal. I cooked this Asian-inspired Sesame Chicken Stir-Fry recipe. It’s incredibly quick, easy and delicious!

If you are the same as my family and me, trying to save money then may I kindly suggest skipping your on an occasion Chinese take-out run and cooking this recipe? And oh lol not to mention it’s affordable and a lot healthier too! 🙂

 

Sesame Chicken Stir-Fry

Ingredients

Sesame Sauce:

1½ tsp flour
3 tsp rice vinegar
¼ C chicken broth
3 Tbsp Bragg
2 tsp sugar
2 tsp sesame seeds, toasted
2 tsp olive oil
1 tsp minced garlic

Chicken:
2 Tbsp olive oil
4 medium chicken breasts, cubed
12 oz. bag Stir Fry Medley
2 tsp minced garlic
2 Tbsp Bragg
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper

Instructions

Prepare the sesame sauce by whisking together the flour with the vinegar in a small bowl. Stir in the rest of the ingredients and set aside.
For the chicken, pour two tablespoons of olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat and add the chicken. Cook for approximately five minutes. Carefully empty chicken into a bowl and set aside.

Next, combine soy sauce and minced garlic (and remaining oil if there is any) to your skillet. Add Stir Fry Medley and cook for about five minutes, stirring constantly. Then, add the chicken back into the pan along with the sesame sauce. Cook on medium heat until the sauce thickens (about four-five minutes) stirring constantly. Add salt and pepper if needed. Serve with rice or noodles. ENJOY!

 

*Toast sesame seeds in a dry skillet over medium heat for three- five minutes or until lightly browned, stirring occasionally. Or bake on an ungreased baking sheet at 350° for eight-ten minutes or until lightly browned. Watch to avoid burning.*
