A while ago I came across this recipe for sesame chicken that sounded really good. I really liked the sound of using the pineapple juice along with the soy sauce, brown sugar and ginger in the sauce. This dish was really easy to make with just a few minutes of prep, some marinating time and a few minutes of sauteing. I really enjoyed the sesame chicken! It was sweet, salty and tangy all at once! I am already thinking about new variations of this dish. Why not throw in some sliced pineapple? How about trying different sweeteners? All honey? Maple syrup? How about working in some teriyaki sauce? Maybe a little bit of chili heat?
- 4 tablespoons soy sauce
- 4 tablespoons pineapple juice
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons ginger (grated)
- 1 pound chicken (cut into bite sized pieces)
- 1 teaspoon peanut oil
- 4 servings cooked rice
- 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
- green onions to garnish
- Mix the soy sauce, pineapple juice, honey, sugar, ginger and chicken in a ziplock bag and marinate in the fridge for about an hour.
- Heat the oil in a pan.
- Add the chicken and marinade to the pan and saute until the chicken is cooked and the sauce begins to thicken.
- Serve on cooked rice and garnish with the sesame seeds and green onion.
