Lighted Up Sesame Chicken Stir-Fry

I love making stir-fry because you can do all your prep-work before hand and then when it comes time to cook you only need 1 pan!

The sauce in this stir-fry has a sweet flavor to it but isn't heavy or thick at all. It could be used on a variety of stir-fry ingredients so be adventurous and switch it up.

Recipe adapted from Iowa Girl Eats


  • 1/2 cup brown rice
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 egg white
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 small chicken breasts, cut into 2″ pieces
  • salt & pepper
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 2 cups broccoli florets (fresh or frozen)

Rinse the rice and prepare according to package directions. 
While the rice is cooking, combine honey, sesame seeds, soy sauce, and garlic together in a small bowl then set aside. 
In a separate larger bowl, whisk together egg white and cornstarch until smooth. Season chicken pieces with salt and pepper then add to egg white mixture and toss to evenly coat.
In a small saucepan, steam broccoli until crisp tender then set aside.
Heat oil in a large wok (or skillet) over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook for 3-4 minutes per side, or until cooked through. Turn off heat and remove skillet from burner. 
Add prepared sauce and green onions then toss to combine. Stir in broccoli, then scoop mixture into bowls over rice.
