Now for the wonderful recipe...

Quick and Easy Sesame Chicken
Ingredients:
  • Package of Chicken Nuggets (I use 25.5 oz GV Chicken Breast Chunks.)
  • 1 c chicken broth
  • 1/2 c white sugar
  • 2 Tbsp distilled white vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 Tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp chile paste (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 c cornstarch
  • 1/2 c water
  • 2 Tbsp toasted sesame seeds
  • 2 c rice (Directions for both parboiled and minute rice)
  • 2 c water
  • 1/2 bag of frozen broccoli florets

Directions:

  1. {If using parboiled rice}Add 2 c water and 2 c rice to hot pot (turn on).
  2. Cook rice for 25 minutes. (You will need to keep checking to make sure the water hasn't all evaporated. Add more if needed.)
  3. Preheat oven according to package of chicken nuggets...usually 350.
  4. While oven is preheating gather all ingredients.
  5. Cook chicken according to package directions...usually for 15-18 minutes.
  6. {If using minute rice}Add 2 c water to hot pot and turn it on.
  7. Bring chicken broth, sugar, vinegar, soy sauce, sesame oil, chile paste, and garlic to a boil in a saucepan over high heat.
  8. {If using minute rice} Add 2 c rice to hot pot, turn it off, and let it sit.
  9. Dissolve 1/4 cup cornstarch into 1/2 cup of water, and stir into boiling sauce.
  10. Simmer until the sauce thickens and turns clear, about 2 minutes.
  11. Reduce heat to low, and keep sauce warm.
  12. With about 5 minutes left on the timer, heat frozen broccoli in microwave for about 4 minutes. (It may need more/less time. Depends on the microwave.)
  13. Serve, sprinkle with sesame seeds, and enjoy!!
