I hesitated posting this because I didn’t like how my picture turned out, but my family loved this dinner so why not pass it on. I first saw the recipe on the blog called Closet Cooking.

Please note, I was supposed to marinate the chicken. However, when everyone’s hungry sometimes marinating just doesn’t happen in my house. If you make this in advance, follow the directions! It looks so much prettier!

I added a little more pineapple than the original recipe and added broccoli over the rice. This is a great dish I highly recommend trying. Enjoy!

Closet Cooking’s Sesame Chicken

4 tablespoons soy sauce
4 tablespoons pineapple juice
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 tablespoons ginger (grated)
1 pound chicken (cut into bite sized pieces)
1 teaspoon peanut oil
4 servings cooked rice
2 tablespoons sesame seeds
green onions to garnish

1. Mix the soy sauce, pineapple juice, honey, sugar, ginger and chicken in a ziplock bag and marinate in the fridge for about an hour.
2. Heat the oil in a pan.
3. Add the chicken and marinade to the pan and saute until the chicken is cooked and the sauce begins to thicken. (This is where I started the recipe and it tasted delish, if you don’t feel like marinating)
4. Serve on cooked rice and garnish with the sesame seeds and green onion.
