Sesame Honey Chicken

Sesame chicken was always one of my favorite dishes when going out for a Chinese.

But Chinese restaurants are known to add extra ingredients, like MSG, to improve the taste… but wreck havoc to our guts.

So I found out how to make it at home, and a healthier version without the mysterious added spices.

Serves 1

  • 1 chicken thigh, cut into 1/8-inch strips
  • 3 Tablespoons cooking oil, divided
  • 2 Tablespoons soy sauce 1/4 Teaspoon pepper
  • 3 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 Tablespoon sesame seeds
  • 1 cup of brown rice


  1. Start cooking the brown rice in boiling water
  2. Place chicken in a glass bowl.
  3. Mix sugar, oil, soy sauce, seasonings and sesame seeds.
  4. Pour mixture over chicken and toss to coat.
  5. Allow to marinate for 15 minutes.
  6. Stir fry marinated chicken in skillet or wok over high heat.
