Recipe

I have a feeling this meal is going to be making a lot of appearances in my house from now on. Not only is it delicious, it takes absolutely no time to put together, and tastes like real take-out sesame chicken. It can also be served in a million different ways as a rice bowl with veggies, over Asian inspired greens as a salad, as an Asian burrito with Sriracha as the hot sauce, with the chicken cut into longer strips and served as chicken fingers you get the idea. Not only that, I am pretty sure the base of this recipe could be used with lots of different flavor combinations. For example what if we added dijon mustard, rosemary, garlic, and lemon juice to the chicken stock?
