Thursday Date Night!

It's Thursday night again, and that means it's date night! Go ahead and grab your hubby and head on over to the grocery story to pick up these ingredients for your asian inspired dinner this evening! The great thing about this dish is that it is a lighter version of the take out option you would get, meaning healthier! Enjoy y'all!

1/2 cup brown rice

1/4 cup honey

2 Tablespoons sesame seeds

2 Tablespoons soy sauce

1 garlic clove, minced

1 egg white

2 Tablespoons cornstarch

2 small chicken breasts (12oz), cut into 2″ pieces
Salt & pepper

1 Tablespoon vegetable oil

2 green onions, chopped

2 cups broccoli florets
        Prepare rice according to package directions. Meanwhile, combine honey, sesame seeds, soy sauce, and garlic together in a small bowl then set aside. In a separate larger bowl, whisk together egg white and cornstarch until smooth. Season chicken pieces with salt and pepper then add to egg white mixture and toss to evenly coat.

·             In a small saucepan, steam broccoli until crisp tender then set aside. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat, then carefully add chicken. Cook for 3-4 minutes a side, or until cooked through. Turn off heat and remove skillet from burner. Add prepared sauce and green onions then toss to combine. Stir in broccoli, then scoop mixture into bowls over cooked rice.
