for you ingredients if you guys are new don’t forget to hit subscribe to see
lots more delicious recipes and let’s go ahead and get into it so this is
everything you are going to need in order to make your sesame chicken
and let’s go ahead and get into it so for the coating I’m using sesame seeds
and a tapioca flour this really helps to adhere to the chicken creates a nice
coating and it’s also grain free and paleo friendly which is nice
then you’re gonna need an egg and just gently whisk that up because it’s gonna
help with our dredging so we’re going to be first doing it into the egg and then
into the flour mixture for the sauce I’m using coconut aminos which is a great
alternative to soy sauce as well as some ground ginger and some ground garlic and
you can definitely do the fresh versions of both of these if that’s what you have
then I’m adding in half a teaspoon of honey just for a little bit of sweetness
this recipe is definitely a lot less sweet than your traditional one but you
still get a hint of it so I’m taking some chicken thighs that I just cut into
pieces but you can also do chicken breasts you
first dip it into the egg and then into the sesame tapioca mixture and I’m
cooking that on a pan that I added some avocado oil to over medium heat so
you’re gonna cook that for about three minutes per side of the chicken and
you’re just gonna completely do each of them until you have them all in the pan
I did about half a pound of chicken thighs just for reference and then you
add in the sauce once they’re finished cooking just to kind of coat the sesame
chicken and get it nice and bubbly and thickened and then your sesame chicken
is good to go I’m pairing this with some cauliflower rice to keep it as more of a
low-carb dinner that’s still super filling and super delicious
you can also garnish it with a little bit of green onion and a final sprinkle
of sesame seeds if you want it to make it fancy and look pretty but you can
definitely add in other fresh herbs that you like as well
but I am obsessed with this chicken sesame recipe it’s so delicious I know

  2. Instead of chicken, I can use tofu, but what can I use for egg replacement?
    And honey can be placed by coconut sugar or maple syrup

  12. I don't have sesame seeds, can I use Tahini?? Or can I use ground up oats instead of the sesame seeds? Or can I just use tapioca flour by itself?

  13. Can I use any flour ?

  14. I really do love sesame chicken but really could you cook the chicken as grilled than fried chicken but still use the sauce?

  15. Mmmm yes 😋 looks delish

  16. love love love your recipes! could you do a skincare routine? your skin is glowing!

  17. You have inspired me on many levels. Thank you 😊

  18. Not a good idea to cook with honey…the heat kills all the nutritions, also it can be poisonous…so it’d be healthier to just cook with brown sugar…

  19. I LOVE this sesame chicken recipe! I made it this past week and I tripled the recipe to have extra for now and to save for later and it’s so good! The only change I made to it was adding some agave syrup since I was really craving a sweet sesame chicken so once I added that it was perfect and totally satisfied my craving. I ate it with steamed broccoli and carrots and I was looking forward to my meals throughout the week because of this sesame chicken so thank you so much for this great recipe!
