Honey Sesame Chicken

Honey Sesame Chicken – bite sized pieces of battered chicken coated in a sweet Asian sauce are so delicious and easy to make, you no longer need to get take out!

Somehow I have gotten on this Asian kick lately and I’m loving every bit of it.  I am finding out just how easy making these meals are and they all are so yummy!  I’m also pretty darn proud of myself for totally keeping to my meal plan this week.  I chose dishes to make and didn’t really specify a day but the night before I needed to make dinner I would choose which one to make.  It worked pretty good for me that way!

Honey Sesame Chicken

I came across the blog My Kitchen Snippets quite some time ago.  The Honey Sesame Chicken sound like something that Grumpy would eat at home so finally, this week I got to making it!  I am finding this type of cooking really supper easy…another reason I keep making it!

Honey Sesame Chicken

Grumpy enjoyed this meal very much.  I did do cheaters fried rice and eggrolls…I was beat and didn’t even want to cook dinner, but the decision to make it was made when Grumpy said he was hungry.  I enjoyed it but I like my Chinese food more spicy (like last nights!).  However, this is a keeper as it is variety and Grumpy liked it!
