We buy our chicken in bulk, because I find it is a much cheaper that way. Around here we can buy it in 25 lbs boxes which usually includes thighs and breasts. Since I do a ton of freezer cooking, I like using chicken because there are so many ways to prepare it. You can roast it, boil it, poach it, grill it, fry it and make casseroles with it. Do I sound like Bubba, from Forrest Gump? You know when he is talking about his shrimp?
I am grateful for all those ways, it sure keeps us from having what I call “bird burnout”. Oh and yes, I can remember getting sick of chicken a time or two back when I first got married. What about you? Are you one of these people who could eat chicken every day of the week and never get tired of it?
This Lemon Sesame Chicken is just the ticket. It is low carb and gluten-free, with a grain free option below in the recipe card. It pairs well with cauliflower fried rice or steamed broccoli. Whatever you choose, it should help keep away that old “bird burnout” for sure.
Unlike some of the similar sesame dishes you find at your local Asian buffets, this recipe is not overly sweet or sticky. I wanted the flavor profile but not a heavy sauce. However, if you like extra sauce on your dish, just double the sauce recipe and add in more sweetener if you like more sauce. Like all my dishes, adapt it to your family’s taste buds. Just taste as you go and adjust if needed.
Before I share the recipe, here are a few more of my Asian inspired posts that you may not have seen. I hope you all enjoy this new chicken recipe and that you share it around your table soon!
