What makes it even better is that it was homemade and healthy-ish.
The alternative is Mai Little China which is perhaps "homemade" but is not even a little bit close to "healthy-ish."
Brandon and I are both pretty quick to give up on supper and get take out. All I have to do is sigh deeply and proclaim my monumental tiredness and he says, "Sweetie don't worry about cooking! I know you are tired. Let's just pick something up."
Which is awesome because that was my plan all along. Mua-ha-haaaa-ha.
But. Remember that time I said I was reigning it in? Yup. Still doing that. Soooo when one is reigning it in, one finds healthy quick dishes to whip together on a weeknight.
And then one raises the roof....
1/4 cup flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
2 boneless skinless chicken breast, cut up into chunks
1/4 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup of sugar
1/2 tsp dark sesame oil
2 tbl sesame seeds, toasted
green onions, chopped (I left these out because my side had some green onions in it)
Combine the flour, salt, pepper and chicken in a large zip lock back. Shake to coat.
Spray a large skillet with cooking spray, heat to medium high heat. Add the chicken and cook until it is done. Remove and transfer to a plate.
Reduce the heat to medium. Combine the soy sauce and the sugar to the skillet. Cook, stirring occasionally until the sugar dissolves. This will turn into a hot, sticky mess...you've been warned.
Add the sesame oil and the sesame seeds. Add the chicken, stir to combine.
