Easy Sesame Chicken

It’s been almost five years to the day since I first posted this Easy Sesame Chicken, and I felt it was about time for me to pay it a visit. I’ve learned a lot since 2013, like a lot a lot, so I tweaked this classic recipe to make it even better and solve some of the issues that readers have encountered over the years.

This Easy Sesame Chicken is seriously so easy that you’ll be tempted to toss those take out menus. The delicious sauce takes only a few ingredients, all of which you can keep on hand indefinitely (keep your ginger in the freezer). You know, just incase you need some sesame chicken like, now. Oh, and this take-out fake-out sesame chicken works great for your weekly meal prep, too!
