Pair with some vegetables and steamed rice or quinoa and you'll have a simple, complete, and tasty meal, that is budget friendly as well.

Easy Sesame Chicken

This Sesame Chicken starts with pieces of chicken, I generally use chicken tenderloins or breasts and cut into bite size pieces. The pieces are then simply coated with eggs and cornstarch/flour, then fried to crispy perfection and golden brown.

After the chicken is done, it is tossed in the delightful sesame sauce to create our dish and ready to serve. For best dish results, you'll want to serve the chicken immediately, as the crispy coating will start to soften after it has been coated in the sauce.

Enjoy the sesame chicken over steamed rice with some of your favorite vegetables.

These Brookies are perfect for the lovely holiday, but they can be made any time for sure.
