Easy Recipes: Sesame Ginger Chicken

Have you ever made homemade Chinese Take-Out? So much fun (and easy). Your family will be impressed.

This was tasty and everyone (I mean everyone) cleaned their plate.

My husband had seconds.

Ingredients:

Optional:

  • 2 c rice
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • garlic
  • half a bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 bag of frozen mixed veggies
  • sesame seeds

 

Start by mixing your packet of Sesame Ginger Mix from Rada with the 1 cup of water and sesame oil.

Use a whisk to combine well.

There is something so wonderful about the smell of sesame oil. Yum!

Place your raw chicken in a casserole dish.

I used one of the new CorningWare casserole dishes my MIL gave me for Christmas. They are beautiful!

Pour the sesame ginger mixture over the chicken breasts and pop a lid on it or cover in foil.

Place in a 350 degree oven. I cooked it with the lid on for 30-35 minutes.

Then I took the lid off and cooked it another 20-25 minutes to brown the chicken a bit.

The last 20 minutes of the chicken cook time I steamed a bag of mixed veggies (adding a little salt and pepper).

I also started my rice cooker and steamed some white rice. I added a bit of salt, a couple cracks of black pepper, a spoonful of minced garlic and half a bell pepper (sliced) to the rice and water before it started cooking.

Once the chicken is done cooking it will look like this.

Remove the chicken from the oven.

Slice the chicken (or de-bone). I like to do this on a plate or cutting board.

This is how the rice looked when it was done.

Yum!!!

Can you tell my rice cooker is a well used appliance in my home?

Scoop a heaping of steamed rice and bell peppers on each plate.

Top with a spoonful of mixed veggies. (I used California mixed veggies, because that is what I had on hand. No one complained about the cauliflower.)

Top with some of the sliced chicken breasts and ladle some of the sesame ginger sauce left in the casserole dish over top.

Shake on some sesame seeds if you have them on hand.

Enjoy!

My family devoured this.
