Sesame chicken

This mouth watering sesame chicken recipe was created by the lovely Cheryl Meyer, registered dietitian and food blogger from Dish and Delight.

Serves 4

INGREDIENTS

1 tablespoon olive oil

4 skinless, deboned chicken breasts, cubed (approx. 125 g each – 500 g)

3 tablespoons low-sodium soya sauce

2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

2 tablespoons honey

1 teaspoon crushed garlic

1 teaspoon crushed ginger

1 teaspoon corn flour

⅓ cup finely chopped spring onion (optional – extra to garnish)

2 teaspoons sesame oil

1 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds, to garnish

salt and pepper, to season

 

METHOD

  1. Season chicken cubes with salt and pepper.
  2. Sauté chicken in olive oil, stirring occasionally, until the chicken is cooked through.
  3. While chicken is cooking, whisk together the soya sauce, apple cider vinegar, honey, garlic, ginger, and corn flour until combined.
  4. When the chicken is cooked through, add the spring onions and soy sauce mixture to the pan and stir to coat the chicken – the sauce will thicken quickly.
  5. Stir in sesame oil, then remove from heat and enjoy.

 

SERVING SUGGESTIONS:

Serve over cooked rice, cauliflower rice, zucchini noodles or quinoa with steamed broccoli, stir-fried mixed veggies or cooked green beans topped a sprinkle of toasted sesame seeds and spring onion slices.

 

We Love:

This is simple Asian cooking at its best, a quick dinner that tastes like takeout but you control the ingredients, you control the flavor.

 

What the dietitians says:

Tip: measure the olive oil in your tablespoon before the honey, so it slides out easily.
