Orange Sesame Chicken

Well its time for me to share this recipe. I have to warn you that I am one of those cooks that takes a recipe, makes it once by the book and then tweaks it for my tastes/supplies. So here is what I have created. I suggest you use my measurements as approximates and taste to your preferences!

Remove chicken and chop into bite sized pieces, add veggies and 1 tablespoon of sesame seeds, saute in leftover oil. 

Toss everything together in a large bowl...only add enough sauce to coat.

Serve with brown rice and edemame! Or whatever you want I guess. 

Now I know some critics would say...OIL...bad...not healthy...yeah yeah I know...but I used very little oil and you could use some spray oil instead I guess...but this is how I did it. Normally you deep fry the chicken and add way more sauce and way more honey...so I did make some improvements! So there! 
It was super yummy and my 7 year old loved it. Its a step in the right direction at the very least. 

Enjoy!
