Lighter Honey-Sesame Chicken


Lighter Honey-Sesame Chicken | Cooking Classy

I love Chinese take-out recipes but I don’t love the frying and calories that comes with most of it, so this time around I’ve lightened up the classic Honey-Sesame Chicken! And trust me you won’t even miss the frying! It’s still totally flavorful and it even has a light battered crust around the chicken, and of course it’s finished off with a generous amount of sesame seeds for that finishing crunch. This is one of those recipes that’s so good I’d have no complaints whatsoever about having it on a weekly basis! It may just become a weeknight regular for you. Plus it’s a crowd pleaser, this is one of those recipes that anyone would love, both young and old alike.

I served mine up with brown rice to keep it healthier (white is prettier so I used white for pictures), but use whatever you like. I loved it with a side of steamed broccoli (you’ll want about 1 lb crowns, stems removed) but it would be also be good with green beans or a sauteed bell peppers, matchstick carrot, snow pea blend. Total comfort food without all the guilt right here and you’re going to love it!
