Mmmmm, I want to eat this again right now! But, it's pre-sunrise and "whipping up a batch" of sesame chicken seems like a little too much....? Yes? No?
Anyway, when I made this for the first time, my husband said he would gladly eat it every week. That's saying a lot for him because he quite dislikes eating the same thing week after week. That's legit. Who wants to be bored with dinner? What a waste of a meal if you're bored with it!?! I love to love my meals! I love to enjoy my meals! And this dish is one I really love to enjoy!
It is really simple to pull together, and tastes so great. I can't say "it's better than take-out" because, truthfully.....I don't think I've ever had take-out sesame chicken....? But I can say it has such fantastic flavour; it's sticky, sweet, garlicky & gingery! Wonderful, wonderful!

For the Sauce
I like to serve Chinese dishes with stir fried cabbage (I just dump the pre-cut coleslaw mix into a pan with some oil, salt & pepper and fry it quickly). I also love using "miracle noodles" (I buy mine from Vitacost)
This week was like, "whaaaaaa?" for me.
Family Day was on Monday, so it was a holiday. Then Tuesday the buses were cancelled because of the wintery weather. Wednesday my kids school was closed due to burst water pipes. The kids finally went back to school on Thursday, but, I mean, that's confusing! My eldest child (who has autism) couldn't figure out what his day would look like ("free time for french?", "popcorn day?") because he was so thrown on what day of the week it was, and my youngest came out of her room and asked if we were going to church thinking that maybe it was Sunday! I felt the same!
Wednesday I had a dance rehearsal for The Music Man and I got home late, so that was exhausting. Then last night my husband and I were at week 7 of a 10 week course we're taking, and we get home late from that, so I was even more exhausted!
I want my coffee to be administered intravenously this morning.......
When I finally sat my sorry self up in bed this morning, I mumbled to my husband, "guess what we're doing first thing tomorrow?", and he answered, "not getting up early?". He guessed right!!!
Ok, whining over! : )
Have a great weekend!
