Chinese Takeout, Without the Takeout

I'll keep it short. Super busy day? Want Chinese? Skip the calories of takeout and make this super healthy rendition of sesame chicken. It's a Martha recipe I have been feeding the kids for years. We're a mostly brown rice family, but white works as well. I even splurge on skinless, boneless white meat (sometimes). Start the rice first and make extra for a stir fried rice later in the week.

On the QT – I always double down on the sauce. Don't tell the food police.

If you want to pair the dinner with a no guilt dessert, brush pineapple slices with veg oil and honey, dust with cinnamon and grill (or broil).

Dinner, done – B

  1. I made this for dinner – and even my “I hate Chinese food” husband really enjoyed it. Thanks Betsy!
