A recipe for microwave/steamed chicken breasts with sesame sauce made from ground sesame seeds. It's so delicious and a perfect meal for lunch because it's light. I've topped it with broccoli sprouts which gives the dish just the right balance.

  • Mix ground sesame seeds, soy sauce, and sugar together in a bowl until sauce is smooth.

  • Cover bowl with a lid or plastic wrap and heat in microwave until no longer pink in the center, about 4 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Let chicken cool until easily handled, about 10 minutes.

  • Shred chicken into bite-size pieces and place in serving bowl; top with broccoli sprouts and sauce.
