Okay guys, last post before I go away for 2 weeks! Tomorrow I head to Berlin for a week, then to Copenhagen and Amsterdam for the second week. I’m PUMPED! I can’t wait to experience all three of those places. There’s no other way I would rather spend my spring break. Except for maybe on an exotic island soaking up the sun. I’m getting kind of tired of Scottish weather.
Nonetheless, this trip is going to be incredible. As an aspiring urban designer I think I’m going to learn a lot! And I’m really excited to have my big brother come meet me in Berlin for part of the time 🙂 #siblingbonding
I’ve gotta be up really early tomorrow morning to catch my shuttle to the airport, so I’m going to keep this short and sweet so I can hit the hay.In my humble opinion, this stuff is just as good as takeout, but a million times better for you. And it’s stupid easy to make! I present to you: Honey Sesame Chicken!
- 3-4 chicken breasts
- 1 egg, whisked
- ¼ cup arrowroot or tapioca starch
- 1 Tbsp + 1 tsp coconut oil
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 tsp grated ginger root
- ¼ cup honey
- 3 Tbsp coconut aminos
- 2 tsp sesame oil
- 1 Tbsp water+ 1 tsp arrowroot or tapioca starch (whisked together to make a slurry)
- Chop the chicken breast into 1 inch cubes. Toss chopped chicken in the whisked egg.
- Move chicken to a large bowl, sprinkle the starch over it, and then toss to evenly distribute the starch so that the chicken pieces are coated in an egg-starch mixture.
- Heat 1 tablespoon of coconut oil in a large pan. Pour the chicken into the pan with any remaining egg-starch mixture. Fry for 7-10 minutes, until cooked through.
- Meanwhile, make the sauce. In a small pot, heat 1 tsp coconut oil, then add the minced garlic and grated ginger. Saute over medium heat for a minute or so, until fragrant.
- Add the honey, coconut aminos and sesame oil, and whisk together.
- Pour the slurry (water+starch) into the pot, and whisk to combine. Let the sauce heat and thicken, keeping an eye on it and stirring occasionally.
- Once the sauce has thickened, pour it over the cooked chicken, and toss to coat evenly.
- Serve over cauliflower rice or broccoli, with a sprinkle of sesame seeds!
