Recipe Ingredients for Lighter Sesame Chicken

0.75 cup Rice, Brown, Medium-grain, Cooked
3 tbsp Full Circle Honey Organic Pure
2 tbsp Sesame Seeds
2 tbsp Soy Sauce
1 clove Garlic
2 large Egg, White
4 tbsp Corn Starch
24 oz Chicken, Breast, Meat Only

Recipe Directions for Lighter Sesame Chicken

  1. Place a steamer basket in a large saucepan, and fill with 1 inch water; set aside for broccoli. Cook rice according to package instructions.

  2. Meanwhile, make sauce: In a small bowl, combine honey, sesame seeds, soy sauce, and garlic; set aside. In a large bowl, whisk together egg whites and cornstarch. Add chicken; season with salt and pepper, and toss to coat.

  3. In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high. Add half the chicken; cook, turning occasionally, until golden and opaque throughout, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a plate; repeat with remaining tablespoon oil and chicken. Return all the chicken to skillet; add reserved sauce and scallions, and toss to coat.

  4. Meanwhile, place saucepan with steamer basket over high heat; bring water to a boil. Add broccoli, and cook until crisp-tender, 4 to 6 minutes. Serve sesame chicken with broccoli and rice.
