Welcome to 2010!
To ring in the new year Joe and I had a date night at home (thank you 8:00 bedtime for the kiddos!) ~ we made food; ate food; watched The Proposal (hilarious!) and I actually stayed up past midnight!
We were given a sweet Asian dining set from Nick and Tonya and wanted to put it to use; I found a recipe that looked good for Sesame Chicken and we were off! The recipe itself was super simple and used ingredients that we had on hand (added bonus!)..and to top it off it was REALLY TASTY:)
1/4 cup flour
4 boneless chicken breast cut into pieces
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/2 tsp sesame oil (we didn't have this)
2 Tablespoons Sesame Seeds
2 Tablespoons oil
Combine flour and pepper in a ziplock bag; add cut up chicken and shake to coat.
Heat oil in skillet, add chicken and cook till no longer pink.
Remove chicken from skillet and set aside.
Add soy sauce and sugar (*I also added some ginger here) and cook till sugar is dissolved; stir in sesame seeds and sesame oil.
Add chicken and stir to coat.
Serve with rice and ENJOY!
