Take out sesame chicken is one of my favorite dishes but it can easily have over 700 calories and 45 grams of fat per serving. Yikes! So this version lightens everything up, adds lots of healthy broccoli, and eliminates the sugar and flour to make it lower in carbs. I could easy eat this every day of the week, it's that easy and that good. Keep leftovers for salads and lettuce wraps.

1

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. In a small bowl, whisk the chicken stock, Stevia, sesame oil, garlic, soy sauce, and white vinegar together. Set aside. In another bowl, toss the chicken with salt, pepper, and flour. 4. 5.

2

In a large pan (make sure it’s oven safe) heat the olive oil over medium heat. Once hot, add the chicken in one layer. Cook for three minutes on one side until nicely browned and then flip and cook for another three minutes on the other side.

3

Turn off the heat and pour the sauce mixture over the chicken, stirring to combine. Place the entire pan in the oven and cook for 20 minutes.

4

Meanwhile, prepare the veggies until just tender crisp. The easiest way to do this is by quickly placing in boiling water for 2-4 minutes until bright in color and just tender. You can also microwave for 4-5 minutes until just tender. Make sure to not overcook your vegetables.

5

During the last two minutes of cooking, stir in the vegetables. Top with sesame seeds.
