Extremely delicious and better than takeout, healthy stir fry sesame chicken recipe using a mix of veggies, chicken, sauce and sesame seeds. It can be enjoyed with steamed veggies, salad, noodles, rice or quinoa.
This Healthy Stir Fry Sesame Chicken Recipe is one of our favorite Friday nights or weeknight or even brunch meals.
It’s saucy and crunchy mixed with seasonal veggies like broccoli, carrots, bell pepper (capsicum) and chicken. All this mix together to form a delicious healthy meal.
Just like most Chinese recipes, the original recipe is also made using crunchy veggies, sweet-spicy sauce and crunchy chicken that’s fried.
However, I didn’t want to add an extra layer of flour or fry the chicken, so I made this ‘Stir Fry Sesame Chicken’ version which is healthy and made much more quickly.
So you get the same taste, crunch but half the calories, so definitely go for that extra helping 🙂
This dish comes together in 20 minutes and is mostly made using a stir-fry method.
This dish is also popularly known as Honey Sesame Chicken Recipe because of the use of honey while stir-frying.
That I’ve mixed and the saucy-glistening chicken in that sweet-spicy sesame sauce.

As you might remember from my last post, I’m trying to get back on a healthier eating routine after spending an entire month or so gorging on all kind of food.
Now my definition of healthy food‘, doesn’t mean boring, bland or curbing any particular food item.
It’s more like eating regularly, right quantity, less of high-calorie food and making a healthier version of my favorite recipes.
Continuing with that, today I’m going to share a quick but healthy recipe for Stir-Fry Sesame Chicken.
It’s one of my goto chicken recipes but it’s usually deep-fried chicken in a thick sticky sauce using sugar and cornstarch.
My version is without any sugar or cornstarch, low in salt and includes a lot of vegetable along with chicken which makes it lighter and crunchy.
This Stir-Fry Sesame Chicken recipe is made under 15 minutes and can be stored in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. Best served fresh along with your choice of side.
When cooking with Soy Sauce, always keep in mind the salt content.
Soy Sauce is high in salt hence if you’re adding additional salt, taste the dish before doing so.
