One of our favorite take-outs on busy weeknights use to be Chinese food. That classic Americanized Chinese food that we all love. Enjoying too much of that delicious take-out, as well as some other not-so-good-for-you take-out foods left me and my husband with a few too many pounds across the mid section a few years back. That’s when I knew I needed to learn how to make our favorite take-out recipes at home, so I could control exactly how much fat and calories goes in the dish, as well as the quality of the ingredients.
Sesame chicken was one of my favorite dishes to get at Chinese take-out restaurants. It always makes me feel like a kid again. It’s one of the most pleasing to the palate dishes they have in my opinion. It’s not really spicy, not too sweet, and has a ton of flavor from the sesame seed oil.
I especially love to make this dish at home too because I can add as much broccoli as I want. It makes me feel better about eating it, and feeding it to my family. You can find my recipe for sesame chicken at my blog, Eclectic Recipes.
