sesame chicken

seriously delicious.  i found this recipe on spark recipes which is an awesome site.  it was way easy to make and everyone liked it.  i think next time i'll use a little less of the sesame seeds and i used tamari instead of regular soy sauce but other than these minor changes, i followed the recipe exact.  FYI: the chicken needs to marinate for a few hours.

sesame chicken
1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into bite sized chunks
3 tbsp soy sauce (light or tamari)
3 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp whole cane sugar or brown sugar
1 tsp honey
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 cup white, un-toasted sesame seeds
liberal pinches of ground pepper, ginger and cinnamon

combine all ingredients except chicken in a bowl.

add chicken, mix together well so the chicken is thoroughly coated in the marinade.  cover and let sit in the fridge for two hrs or so.

pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

arrange chicken on a cookie sheet and pour liquid on top of it.

bake in the oven for 5 minutes, flip chicken pieces with a spatula and bake for another 5 minutes or until done (i baked for 7 minutes per side).

makes 4-4 oz servings.

serve with rice and veggies.

**sodium content assumes regular soy sauce.
