Honey Sesame Chicken

Let’s cook Asian-style dinner - juicy chicken fillet, marinated in soy sauce with honey, ginger and garlic. Such a chicken with honey and sesame will be a great alternative to cutlets or chicken fillet steak. The meat is very juicy, tender and fragrant. Honey marinade with ginger softens the fibers of meat, making it especially soft and juicy, so the finished dish literally melts in the mouth. In my opinion, this is a wonderful way to prepare chicken deliciously and unusually if you want to diversify your everyday menu with a new piquant chicken Asian recipe. The sesame chicken prepared in this way can be served as an independent dish or as a side dish for rice, rice noodles or funchose. Fresh vegetable salad will also be a great addition.

  • 1. Wash chicken fillet, clean from fat and skins and cut into pieces of medium size.
  • 2. Let’s make a marinade. In a deep ware, combine liquid honey and soy sauce. Add grated ginger and garlic cloves passed through the press. Mix the marinade until homogeneous consistency.
  • 3. Put the prepared chicken fillet in the marinade. Add salt and black ground pepper to taste, don’t forget that soy sauce is also salty.
  • 4. Mix the ingredients. Let's leave the chicken fillet in the marinade for 30 minutes so that the meat gets marinated and soaked in spice flavors. Thanks to the marinade, Asian honey sesame chicken will be very fragrant.
