Healthy Sesame Chicken
This Healthy Sesame Chicken covered in a sticky sweet sesame sauce tastes just like Chinese takeout but is actually good for you.
What you need:
- 1.33 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into pieces
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp pepper
- 1 tbsp cornstarch
- 1/2 cup low sodium chicken broth
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 tbsp sesame oil
- 1 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
- 1 tbsp brown sugar
- 1 tbsp white vinegar
- 1/2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp. sesame seeds
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. In a small bowl, whisk the chicken stock, brown sugar, sesame oil, garlic, soy sauce, and white vinegar together. Set aside.
In another bowl, toss the chicken with salt, pepper, and cornstarch.
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 2-3 minutes on one side until seared and then flip and cook for another 2-3 minutes on the other side.
Turn off the heat and pour the sesame sauce mixture over the chicken, stirring to combine.
Place the entire pan in the oven and cook for 20 minutes, or until the sauce thickens. Then toss the chicken with sesame seeds and serve.
