We love lean chicken because it’s so versatile, and our Sesame Honey Chicken recipe is no different. Serve it up with a side of brown rice or one of our fresh, tasty salad recipes, and you won’t be disappointed. This chicken is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. The kids will love it, and so will you!
Chinese take-out and delivery is a quick and easy way to get dinner on the table, but unfortunately, it is some of the most unhealthy food available. The meals are high in fat, loaded with sodium, and packed with preservatives. The chicken dishes might seem as if they would be healthier than beef options, but don’t count on it. In most cases, Chinese take-out is going to pack on the pounds and wreak any healthy eating habits.
Our sesame honey chicken recipe helps you satisfy your craving for Chinese take-out without all the detrimental ingredients. All of our chicken recipes are healthy and this one is no exception. The next time you have a hankering to pick up the phone and place an order for Chinese delivery, give this recipe a try instead.
Don’t let the fat content scare you, about 98% of the fat in this recipe comes from the sesame seeds, which contain a very healthy fat. Learn more about healthy fats here.
