This is a quick and easy, but very tasty meal. You can substitute the chicken with beef or pork for variety. My wife and I absolutely love this recipe, and it only takes 30 minutes with very few dirty dishes! Serve over rice
Prep: 15 mins
Cook: 15 mins
1/4 cup chopped onion
5 tablespoons soy sauce
2 1/2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons minced garlic
2 tablespoons sesame oil
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
1/2 teaspoon cayenne
salt and ground black pepper to taste
1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cut into thin strips
Add all ingredients to list
1Whisk onion, soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic, sesame oil, sesame seeds, cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper together in a bowl until marinade is smooth
2Cook and stir chicken and marinade together in a large skillet over medium-high heat until chicken is cooked through, about 15 minutes.
Add vegetables if you wish; I normally use carrot straws and sliced mushrooms. For a little more bite, I use a peppercorn medley grinder instead of black pepper. You can substitute peanut oil for the sesame oil, if desired.
Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.
