Honey Seared Sesame Chicken And Jasmine Rice!
Susan is back with a fun new chicken recipe:
Honey Seared Sesame Chicken is one of my daughter’s favorite recipes. It is so easy and can be made so quickly that I can’t believe I haven’t tried it before tonight.
HONEY SEARED SESAME CHICKEN
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup honey
1 tsp rice vinegar (optional)
1/4 tsp ground ginger
2.5 tbsp sesame seeds
4 chicken breasts
2 tbsp oil (I used coconut oil)
Sauté the onion in the oil for about 10 minutes. Cut the chicken into bite sized pieces. Add the chicken to the onions and brown it.
In another dry skillet, slightly brown the sesame seeds. Make sure you don’t burn them. I only cooked these for a couple of minutes and stirred them while I was doing it. Set these aside. Mix the honey, ginger, vinegar, and soy sauce in a bowl. Add the sesame seeds to the chicken and stir. Add the sauce and cook it all together for a few minutes to combine the flavors. Serve the chicken over the rice. It should be kind of runny so that the rice has plenty of sauce.
1 cup jasmine rice (or plain rice)
1 3/4 cup water
3 chicken bouillon cubes (or 3 tsp bouillon powder)
2 tsp Asian Seasoning Mix (I used Pampered Chef) optional
I cooked the Jasmine rice in a Pampered Chef Microwave Rice Cooker. To do that, you cook it on high for 5 minutes and then 10 minutes on half power. Then I let it sit for about 10 minutes, still in the cooker. If you don’t have one of these, follow the directions on the package but add the bouillon and seasoning to it when you begin.
Hi, my name is Susan and Permanent Posies (Creative Chaos) is my blog and my subject matter is…well, that depends on the day and the mood. But, for the most part, I love cooking, watching the Food Network, reading cookbooks and, of course, eating. I am also an artist and spend time each week in my studio (bedroom) oil painting. I am a mother of four and a grandmother to 5 and that, along with my husband and 2 dogs, take up my most of my time. I am a side-tracked Home Executive and I had the privilege of being a stay –at-home mom so, you might say that my passion is the home and making a haven for those I love.
