At some point I need to adopt a healthy eating plan.  This was going to be my start last week, but its been downhill since then.  There’s always tomorrow. 🙂  And when I get that going, I’d definitely make this again; tasty and simple!  I think next time I would add some vegetables for an additional crunch, maybe some snow pea pods or broccoli.

Sesame Chicken
Found at Mrs. D Loves to Eat; originally from Martha Stewart
  • 1 1/2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 2-inch chunks
  • 3 tbsp. honey
  • 2 tbsp. sesame seeds
  • 2 tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1/4 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp. vegetable or canola oil
  • 4 scallions, thinly sliced
Mix together honey, sesame seeds, soy sauce and garlic in a small bowl.  In a separate bowl, whisk together egg whites and flour then add the chicken to this bowl seasoning with salt and pepper.  Mix to throughly coat the chicken with the egg/flour mixture.
In a large nonstick skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat.  Once hot, add half the chicken or whatever you can without crowding the pan.  Cook for 3-4 minutes then flip the chicken pieces over and continue to cook for another 3-4 minutes or until the chicken is lightly browned and cooked through.  Remove that chicken and repeat if needed for another batch.  If not, leave the cooked chicken in the pan and add the honey/sesame seed mixture and the scallions and mix together.
Serve with vegetables or over rice.
