And I do know that I "owe" you a Date Night post. It was a tapas kind of a thing...so probably you'll get to see the recipes as appetizers in future posts. As for dessert, well, I'm making it again tonight. So there.
Tonight's meal I made for the first time last week and it was sooooooo good. Josh said PF Chang's good.
Without further ado, here is the recipe:
Light Sesame Chicken
- 2lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite sized pieces
- 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 1 tbsp sesame oil
- 1/3 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
- 1 tbsp brown sugar
- 4 garlic cloves, minced
- 1/4 cup rice vinegar
- 1/2 cup fat free chicken broth
- 1 tbsp toasted sesame seeds
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- In a small bowl, combine flour and pepper. Toss chicken pieces in mixture until they are all evenly coated with flour.
- Preheat a medium sized non-stick, oven-safe skillet and spray with non-fat cooking spray. Place chicken in pan, and cook until seared on each side, about 2-3 minutes per side.
- In a small bowl whisk together the soy sauce, vinegar, chicken broth, sesame oil, brown sugar, and garlic.
- Pour mixture into the seared chicken, and toss around a bit to mix. Place entire skillet into oven, and cook for about 20 minutes. Let cool about 5 minutes. Toss with sesame seeds and serve.
