Super Sweet Sesame Chicken

Tonight was great. I took Body Pump and then Jill and I team taught Turbo Kick! It was an intense class! Afterwards I made some sweet sesame chicken from this amazing blog. I altered the recipe a tad (just because I didn't have the right spices)!

Sesame Chicken

1/4 cup flour

1/4 cup toasted sesame seeds, divided

1/4 tsp black pepper

1/4 tsp ground red pepper

1/8 tsp cumin

1/4 tsp fennel

2 chicken breast halves, cut into bit sized chunks

1.5 tablespoons vegetable or canola oil

2 tablespoons honey

2 tablespoons low sodium teriyaki sauce/marinade

In a ziplock bag(or bowl), combine flour, 2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds, ground red pepper, cumin, fennel, and black pepper. Add chicken pieces and shake (or mix) until coated.

Heat vegetable oil in a skillet over medium high heat. Add chicken and cook through.

Add remaining sesame seeds, teriyaki and honey and desired vegis and stir until thickened.
