Sesame Chicken and Rice Bowls

Believe it or not, I have never had Sesame Chicken before. Why the heck did I wait my entire life to have this?! I actually had always thought that this chicken was not sweet which is what I prefer. I have been kidding myself all these years.

I cooked my chicken breast in the air fryer this time and that will be how I make it moving forward! Talk about super easy and quick! I have never put raw chicken in there and not sure why as I use my air fryer for EVERYTHING!

Meal prepping is what holds yourself accountable and makes you successful. Do it for YOU!


Sesame Chicken and Rice Bowls

WOW this Sesame Chicken turned out so delicious! It was really hard to not eat one of these right after making them.
These turned out perfectly cooked using the air fryer. I am not sure why I never thought of using it for raw chicken until now but moving forward I sure will!
I have never ordered this when getting takeout or at a restaurant. I usually go for General Tso's or Sweet and Sour but now that I have had this for the first time I will definitely have to order it some day and compare to this deliciousness!!
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Servings 4

Equipment

  • 1 Air Fryer
  • 1 Rice Cooker
  • 2 Large Mixing Bowl
  • 1 Sauce Pan

Ingredients
  

  • 24 oz Diced Chicken Breast Chunks
  • 4 cups White Rice

Asian Sesame Sauce

  • 3 tbsp Lite Soy Sauce
  • 4 tbsp Sugar Free Ketchup (I use GHughes)
  • 3 tbsp Sugar Free Sweet Chili Sauce (I use GHughes)
  • 3 tbsp Sugar Free Honey (I use HoneyTrees)
  • 2 tbsp Sweetened Rice Vinegar
  • 1 tbsp Toasted Sesame Oil
  • 3 tbsp Swerve Brown Sugar

Instructions
 

  • Cook your big batch of rice in a rice cooker or pressure cooker
  • Spray your chicken with avocado spray and air fry at 380 for 14 minutes. Flip them all over when you have 4 minutes left which your fryer should beep at you. You will want to cook in two batches so they are laying flat.
  • Mix your sauce ingredients in a small sauce pan. Bring on high so sugar melts then turn to 2 or down to simmer
  • Once your first batch of chicken is done, dump into a bowl and cook your second batch
  • Once your rice is done, measure out into each of your lunch containers
  • When the second batch of chicken is done, add to the rest of your chicken in the bowl
  • Pour sauce into little sauce containers (optional) then the remaining over the chicken and stir
  • Divide up into your lunch containers and top with green onion and sesame seeds.
