sticky sweet sesame chicken

Rice served with some sort of sticky goodness is always appealing to me. This recipe was inspired in part by the "sticky thai chicken" recipe from this Donna Hay book.

sticky sweet sesame chicken
for 2

2 teas sesame oil
1 teas dried red pepper flakes
1 Tbs grated ginger
3 Tbs fresh lime juice
3 Tbs oyster sauce
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 chicken breasts, pounded and cut in half
sesame seeds

In two small bowls, prep ingredients: oil, red peppers, and ginger in one, and lime juice, oyster sauce, and sugar in the other. In a large pan over med-high heat, cook the oil/pepper/ginger mix for about a minute. Then, stir in the lime/oyster/sugar mix and cook for another minute.

Add chicken pieces and cook for 6-8 minutes, until almost done. Increase heat, turn chicken, sprinkle with sesame seeds and cook for another few minutes until it's sticky and golden (and cooked through).

It's yummy served with rice and steamed/sauteed veggies.
