Honey Seared Sesame Chicken and Jasmine Rice

by Permanent Posies on July 18, 2011

Honey Seared Sesame Chicken is one of my daughter’s favorite recipes.  It is so easy and can be made so quickly that I can’t believe I haven’t tried it before tonight.  



1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup honey
1 tsp rice vinegar (optional)
1/4 tsp ground ginger
2.5 tbsp sesame seeds
4 chicken breasts
1/2 onion
2 tbsp oil (I used coconut oil)

Sauté the onion in the oil for about 10 minutes.  Cut the chicken into bite sized pieces.  Add the chicken to the onions and brown it. 
In another dry skillet, slightly brown the sesame seeds.  Make sure you don’t burn them.  I only cooked these for a couple of minutes and stirred them while I was doing it.  Set these aside.  Mix the honey, ginger, vinegar, and soy sauce in a bowl.  Add the sesame seeds to the chicken and stir.  Add the sauce and cook it all together for a few minutes to combine the flavors.  Serve the chicken over the rice.  It should be kind of runny so that the rice has plenty of sauce.


1 cup jasmine rice (or plain rice)
1 3/4 cup water
3 chicken bouillon cubes (or 3 tsp bouillon powder)
2 tsp Asian Seasoning Mix (I used Pampered Chef) optional

I cooked the Jasmine rice in a Pampered Chef Microwave Rice Cooker.  To do that, you cook it on high for 5 minutes and then 10 minutes on half power.  Then I let it sit for about 10 minutes, still in the cooker.  If you don’t have one of these, follow the directions on the package but add the bouillon and seasoning to it when you begin.

I am posting my Honey Seared Sesame Chicken as my guest blog with Grocery Shop for Free and for my blog party, Tuesday’s Tasty Tidbits.  I hope you enjoy it.  Please join our blog party by submitting your recipe post at the bottom of the page and make sure to link back on yours so that everyone can find us.  Also, make sure you link us to your recipe and not your home page or giveaway.
