A healthier, simpler, and more savory take on sesame chicken. This recipe can be made with regular flour or with a gluten-free flour mix, along with basic ingredients you can already find in your kitchen. My husband absolutely loves it and it is the perfect alternative to a night in with take-out. Best served with steamed rice, broccoli, carrots, and water chestnuts. Serve with steamed rice and vegetables.

Super easy and absolutely delicious! If you have kids (or any other non-spicy eaters) you will want to scale back the red pepper flakes. IMHO the sweet and heat really makes it though. Will definitely be making this again. Read More

It was yummy! I substituted flour with gluten free flour mix and gluten free soy sauce. However I used a stainless steel frying pan, added cashews, onions and colorful peppers. Loved it! Read More

VERY tasty. I made it with steamed broccoli and carats over cauliflower rice. The recipe is a bit on the hot side. My wife said she’d use less pepper flakes. Read More
