Paleo Easy Gluten-Free Healthy Sesame Chicken

I can’t think of a better way to ring in 2019 than with a healthy sesame chicken recipe.

Partially because it’s just SO GOOD and also because it is my MOST favorite takeout of all time. More delicious than mango chicken with coconut cauliflower rice, paleo orange chicken and paleo cashew chicken. MAYBE even than  paleo low-carb keto beef and broccoli or paleo gluten free healthy sweet and sour chicken too!

Fun fact about me: I was the girl who walked in front of Panda Express eleventy billion times, each time changing up my appearance a bit (sunglasses! Hair in a pony tail! Hair down!) in hopes that they would extend a toothpick of LOVE, in the form of a sesame chicken sample, to me each and every time I walked by.

Not TRYING to toot my own horn buuuuut I was a RLY RLY good stealthy sesame chicken sampler.

But, at some point in life, you realize that you can’t Ninja around the food court every time the sesame-tastic craving hits and it comes time to WOMAN UP and create your own sesame seed chicken recipe.

Internet friends. That time is NOW. And this easy sesame chicken?

You are going to RLY RLY like it.

The golden-brown chicken is ultra crispety and crunchety on the outside, and then EXPLODES in juicy chicken goodness all over your taste buds.

Is sesame chicken healthy?

By the standard definition of “healthy,” sesame chicken would not be considered healthy as it’s deep-fried and tossed in a sugar-y, msg-y sauce. <– Remember, sometimes “unhealthy” food can be healthy for your soul though! So, eating it if you’re craving it is a-ok!

BUT, if you want to eat it every day like yours truly, then this gluten-, grain-, dairy- and SUGAR-FREE version is for YOU.
