Sesame Chicken with Broccoli

My son came to visit, and he loves to whip this up for the family. Super easy and fast too.

Sesame Chicken with Broccoli

Serve 4-6

1 Cup white rice, raw

2 Cups water

1 teaspoon salt

8 Cups of Broccoli Florets

6 Tablespoon cornstarch

1 1/2 teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon black pepper

2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken of choice

4 Tablespoons vegetable oil, divided

¼ Cup Honey (4 Tablespoons)

½ Cup soy sauce

1/3 Cup Rice Wine Vinegar

1 Tablespoon Sriracha

(bottled chili sauce with Chicken on the label)

1 Tablespoon minced garlic

2 teaspoon minced grated fresh ginger

1 Tablespoon toasted sesame oil

2 tablespoons sesame seeds, divided

2 green onion, thinly sliced

Add rice and water to a covered saucepan. Simmer about 20 minutes. Set aside.

Set steamer basket into a medium saucepan filled with 1-inch of water. Cover the saucepan, bring water to a boil. Add the broccoli and steam until tender yet crisp about 5 minutes. Lift out steamer basket and set aside.

Cut chicken into bite sized pieces. In a gallon zip lock bag combine cornstarch, salt, pepper. Add Chicken pieces and shake to combine, break apart the chicken with your fingers from the outside of the bag.

In a large skillet heat 2 Tablespoon vegetable oil in a large skillet over high heat. Remove chicken from bag and shake to discard the extra flour. Add half of the chicken to the skillet and cook until chicken is cooked through and a light brown crust forms, about 5 minutes. Transfer cooked chicken to a plate, and then cook remaining chicken. Remove from skillet to the plate.

To Make the sauce; place into the skillet the honey, soy sauce, vinegar, sriracha, garlic, ginger, sesame oil, and half the sesame seeds. Scrape the browned bits from the bottom of the skillet. Cook 1 minute to reduce slightly. Return chicken to skillet and tossed to combine. Heat about 2 minutes. Add in the reserved broccoli to the chicken and toss to coat.

Serve over the cooked rice. Top with scallions and remaining sesame seeds.
