Easy Sesame Chicken Recipe #Easy #Sesame #Chicken #Recipe Chicken Recipes Healthy, Chicken Recipes Easy, Chicken Recipes Baked,Easy Sesame Chicken Recipe – battered chicken fried in a pan and coated with sesame sauce. Popular Asian takeout dish, made easily at home.Thursdays in our house are for Asian dinners. If I am not making my Teriyaki Chicken Rice Bowls, the Easy Chicken Stir Fry, I am whipping up this Easy Sesame Chicken. There is an additional step of dipping the chicken in the batter, comparing to the other recipes, but it’s totally worth it and very quick. As always, my goal is to make the recipe as easy as possible.

This Easy Sesame Chicken is so flavorful and delicious, you will add it to your weekly menu. It’s so easy to make, and since the sauce can be made ahead of time and the recipe calls for chicken thighs, this recipe is a budget-friendly time-saver. Perfect for busy weeknights!

A little bit of planning and you can make the sauce and prep the chicken ahead of time and just cook everything in one pan, under 20 minutes. To make Sesame Chicken, cut chicken thighs into bite-size pieces. In a medium bowl, whisk together egg, cornstarch, salt and pepper. Add cut chicken to the egg mixture and stir to coat. Heat up olive oil in a pan and drop coated chicken pieces to cook. It’s easier to do that in two batches to make sure each piece is cooked. Next, pour the sauce mixture over chicken and simmer on medium-low heat until the sauce thickens.
