This recipe comes from a great blog I have been following for quite some time. Balancing Beauty & Bedlam is one of those blogs where it seems like it was written for me. Be sure to swing by and check out the Beauty of a Blog!
Now I found the sauce very strong tasting, but that was either because I used the apple cider vinegar OR because I included the veggies into the sauce. It was delicious, but I think next time I will layer the noodles and vegetables, and top with chicken and sauce. We loved this recipe and will be making it again soon!
Inspiration: Simple Sesame Chicken from Balancing Beauty & Bedlam
3 Boneless Chicken Breasts
1/2 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
3/4 cup Brown Sugar
3/4 cup Soy Sauce
1 cup Water
1/4 cup Cornstarch
2 tsp Ginger
1 tsp Red Pepper Flakes
1 Tbsp Sesame Seeds
1 Tbsp Golden Flax Seeds (Dr Oz says I need to eat more Flax)
Choice of oil - I used Vegetable Oil
6 Noodle 'Nests' - I used 3 minute Chow Mein Noodles
1 Package of Oriental Mix Frozen Veggies
1. Cut Chicken into bite sized strips and dredge in the flour for a quick batter.
2. Heat oil over Med-high, and fry the chicken with the little garlic until golden crispy and cooked through. Remove from pan.
3. Combine brown sugar, soy sauce, water, cornstarch, ginger, red pepper flakes and vinegar. Whisk until no lumps appear and its well blended.
5. When the Veggies are hot and cooked through, add the sauce and over medium-high heat while the sauce thickens. Once it begins to thicken, add the chicken, toss to coat and you're ready to serve. If the sauce is too thick, whisk in some water to thin slightly.
6. Serve over noodles and sprinkle with sesame & flax, and dig in!
