Sharing my super easy recipe for sesame chicken. It’s been a weekly staple for dinner and does not disappoint.
I used potato starch to coat the chicken and also in the sauce to thicken it up a bit but feel free to use cornstarch instead. I prefer potato starch for its resistant starch health benefits, see below.
- Resistant starch benefits
- acts similar to fiber
- lowers blood sugar levels
- improves insulin sensitivity.
- decreases cholesterol levels.
The sesame chicken is paired with sauteed broccoli and a combination mixture of cauliflower rice and quinoa. I love the texture of the two combined and you’re getting complex carbohydrates and fiber plus extra protein from the quinoa. Lots of healthy benefits. You can also serve with rice instead if that’s more your style. Kelp noodles would also be a great alternative too.
