That’s how I felt about today.
So how did I turn my day around?
I made some comforting Sesame Chicken for dinner, that’s what I did!
Sesame Chicken (serves four): courtesy of We Are Not Martha
- 3/4 cup brown rice
- 3 tablespoons honey
- 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1 garlic clove, crushed or finely chopped
- 2 large egg whites
- 1/4 cup cornstarch
- 1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut into 2-inch chunks
- Salt and pepper
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 4 scallions, thinly sliced
- 1 1/2 pounds broccoli, cut into large florets
I’d suggest starting your rice first (if not using instant) since rice takes awhile. I pulled out the rice maker so I could multi-task without burning anything.
Then go ahead and make your sauce. In a bowl mix honey, soy sauce, sesame seeds and garlic. Give it a good stir. [Mine looks like a bowl full of sesame seeds… but I swear it’s the sauce… and it’s gooooood!]
Heat oil in large skillet. Add half the chicken and cook until golden. Remove and put chicken aside on another plate. Repeat with remaining chicken. Once all of the chicken is cooked, add it back to the pain along with the sauce and scallions. Make sure all of the chicken gets coated with the sauce.
If your rice is done, serve it all up on a plate and enjoy!
