Sesame Chicken Says Eat Me!

with 4 comments

I’ve been slacking on this whole cooking and posting thing, but I’ve here’s one of two posts I’ve been meaning to put up!

Lookit those awesome chopsticks

Pile 'o' Sesame Chicken & Veggies

This is a pretty simple dish to make and doesn’t take long at all.  Start by rinsing & pat dry the chicken.  Cut into bite sized chunks and throw into a bowl with flour and half of the sesame seeds. Add assorted spices and mix well.  In a skillet, heat a couple tablespoons of oil to cook the chicken in – the flour will soak up a lot of the oil so you may need to add more. Cook ~ 4 mins a side then remove and set aside. Toss the green pepper, onion into pan and sautee until onions start to become translucent. Add chicken back in and douse with teriyaki sauce and cover with remaining sesame seeds. Keep warm until ready to eat!  This is a pretty mild spicy dish so add a chili pepper or two to clear your sinuses.

Sake Sake Sake

Sake Sake Three Legged Race Sake Sake

I served with Snap Peas to make a delicious crunchy side to compliment the squishyness of the rice and chicken. Also shown are collapsible chopsticks (with their own special carrying case) and a white sake cup from Asia courtesy of Andy & Kara! The cup has two wrinkly sumo wrestlers appearing to run a three-legged race. Or maybe they’re actually wrestling. There’s also a big crowd behind them. And a dude who could easily pass as Shredder from TMNT if only he had a mask. Yay!


1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup toasted sesame seeds
black pepper, 5 spice, red pepper flakes
1lb chopped chicken breasts
1/3 yellow onion cut into wedges
2 gr peppers
1 jalapeno, seeded & diced
1/4 cup teriyaki sauce

Other things that would go well in this: carrots, red pepper, a chili pepper for hotness, brown rice instead of white, water cress, snow peas.

Total time ~25 minutes, or 15 if you use instant rice.

Serves two plates with leftovers. Total cost per plate: $6.
