Simple Sauteed Sesame Chicken

Rated as 4.17 out of 5 Stars

"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."

It was spicy, so next time I’m doing half the red pepper lakes. But other than that it was a hit!!

I will make it again. I will use less pepper but otherwise so easy and so good.

Delicious Baked it longer to brown, a little dry, definitely bake less.

Will definitely make this again!

Good simple meal
