Delicious & Easy Sesame Honey Chicken takeout at home! A healthier spin on a popular Asian dish!
Some of my favorite foods are Asian dishes. Japanese, Chinese, Korean...I love them all!
A few years back, there was a popular restaurant that came to town that actually inspired this dish. If you have heard of P. F. Chang, then you probably know what I'm referring to...I think it is called, "Crispy Honey Chicken". It is battered-fried chicken tossed in a sweet and tangy sauce. I've actually only had it a couple of times due to the fact that it doesn't make me feel very good after I eat it.
I won't get into a long explanation, but of course it's loaded with some pretty bad ingredients, which explains why it makes me feel the way it does. So, therefore I haven't had it in years, but of course I have craved it ever since.
Well, a few years back, I set out to recreate this dish at home, but with a healthier spin. I can honestly say the last couple of times I have prepared this for my family, I believe I have perfected it. They rave about it every time I make it.
I love it that I can make this recipe at the fraction of the cost, and secondly, I have control over the ingredients that are gonna keep me and my family feeling good afterwards.
