  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1 pound boneless and skinless chicken breasts cut into 1 inch strips
  • 1 carrot peeled and sliced into thin 1 inch ribbons
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce low-sodium
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1 teaspoon ginger fresh, grated
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • 1/4 cup green onion sliced


  • Heat the sesame oil on medium heat. Once hot add the chicken and carrot. Cook until the chicken is firm and cooked through. Drain off any excess liquid.
  • In a small bowl, combine all ingredients except sesame seeds and green onion. Whisk until smooth and pour over the cooked chicken. Bring to a simmer and cook for 1 minute, or until thick and chicken is coated. Stir in the sesame seeds. Remove from heat and top with green onion. Serve over brown rice or quinoa, if desired.
