This 30-minute, easy sesame chicken recipe is actually paleo sesame chicken, but it tastes just like takeout Chinese honey sesame chicken! Learn how to make sesame chicken that's both healthy and delicious.
Cut the chicken into small bite size pieces. In a large bowl whisk the egg, 2 tablespoons arrowroot powder, salt, and white pepper together until smooth. Toss in the chicken and toss to coat.
Heat about 3 tablespoons of coconut oil in a large skillet (I use my wok) over medium-high heat.
Working in batches fry the chicken 2 minutes per side until golden and crisp and almost cooked through.
When you only have a few pieces of chicken left just add the entire rest of the mixture, egg and all into the oil making sure you nudge the chicken pieces away from each other so they don't stick together.
Once all chicken is cooked add the other chicken back to the skillet and add in the broccoli. (If using frozen be sure to thaw them quickly under warm water so the moisture doesn't ruin the chicken)
Toss the broccoli and the chicken for a few minutes to crisp up. Pour in the sauce and toss. It should instantly become thick and glossy. Turn off the heat and sprinkle with sliced green onions.
Serving size: 1 cup chicken + 1/2 cup broccoli (1/4 of entire recipe)
