Traditionally, Sesame Chicken is coated in a batter, deep-fried, and tossed with a sweet sesame sauce. This recipe lightens the Chinese-American meal by coating the chicken in a thin layer of flour and pan frying. To decrease the sodium content, use a reduced-sodium soy sauce. With a cooking time of less than 30 minutes, this Light Sesame Chicken has become a weekday favorite. I have repeated this recipe a few times, which is a rarity for someone who tries to cook something different every day.
To add some vegetables, I placed fresh broccoli in the steamer section of the rice cooker over the rice. As the rice cooked, the broccoli steamed and both were done by the time the chicken finished cooking.
