Skillet Sesame Chicken & Broccoli

Hey hey everybody it’s Tiffany from Creme de la Crumb and I’ve got one amazing meal to share with you today!!!!! <— see all those exclamation points? I can hardly contain my excitement here.


The best thing about this dish – wait. scratch that. I almost said the best thing about this dish is that it takes only 30 minutes but I think in all reality the very best thing about this dish is how darn tasty it is because that sweet and savory sesame flavor is out of this world yummy.


So I guess the second best thing about this dish is that it takes just 30 minutes (maybe even a little less??) and you just can’t beat that when you are making a home cooked meal that is equally as tasty as take-out but much better for you in the health department. {Not to mention cheaper when feeding your whole family}

  1. I just made this. Good, but a little too sweet for me. I would cut back on the sugar next time. I had a hard time finishing, it was so sweet. Maybe should be called honey chicken with Sesame Seeds.

  2. Shawnna says:

    hey girl I would so love this! Yummy!

  3. I tried making this last night. The sauce is way, way too sweet. It really lacks balance and finesse. I wanted to like it and had all the ingredients at home… it just was kind of disgusting to be honest.

  4. What would you serve this with? Rice? Potatoes? Stuffing?
