Sticky Sesame Chicken

This weekend I wanted to try something new as I seem to be just cooking all of my favourites recently. Sometimes I find it quite difficult to decide what to make so this weekend it was all based around the fact that I had bought some Udon Noodles and wanted something really delicious to go with them. So I started to think of ideas and there was only one thing I wanted to make Sticky Sesame Chicken! Here is how you do it:

Ingredients

  • 400g of Chicken Breast, Diced
  • 2 tbsp of Soy Sauce
  • 1 tbsp of Honey
  • 4 tbsp of Lime Juice
  • 2 Crushed Garlic Cloves
  • 1/2 tsp of Chilli Flakes
  • 2 tbsp of Olive Oil
  • 2 tbsp of Sesame Seeds

Method

  1. Mix the soy sauce, honey, lime juice, garlic, chilli flakes and one tablespoon of the olive oil in a bowl
  2. Add the chicken and make sure that it is all covered in the marinade
  3. Place into the fridge and allow to marinate for at least 30 minutes (it can be left as long as you like)
  4. Then heat the other tablespoon of oil into a frying pan
  5. Pour in the chicken and all the remaining marinade
  6. Fry for 25 minutes until all of the chicken is cooked through and the sauce has boiled down and become sticky (this sounds odd but after 15 minutes, I thought I had gone wrong as it seemed to be stweing in a sauce, then suddenly it will thicken and darken and cling to the chicken)
  7. Serve your chicken onto a bed of noodles or rice and sprinkle with the sesame seeds
  8. This recipe serves 2

In fact, after my slight confusion when cooking, that I had gone wrong, this Sticky Sesame Chicken was simply really really delicious! It was truly sticky and had a warm and deep flavour that almost made it feel like a naughty treat, when it is actually pretty good for you as an evening meal. I know I will be making this again, probably more than once!
