I absolutely love trying my hand at restaurant-style meals in the comfort of my own kitchen. Homemade meals (almost) always taste better, and there’s a lot of satisfaction that comes with producing a high quality meal on your own. I found this recipe while flipping through one of my mom’s really old cookbooks – the kind where everyone from the neighborhood compiles their recipes, and produces a book for everyone. What a great find! The best part about this dish is that while it does look like it came from a restaurant, it’s super easy to make – win/win!
4 chicken tenderloins, cut into small pieces
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp garlic powder
sesame seeds, to taste
1 package microwaveable brown rice
Place the chicken in a shallow baking dish.
In a small bowl, combine the honey, brown sugar, soy sauce, and garlic powder. Stir until well combined.
Pour the sauce over the chicken, cover with foil, and bake at 325 for an hour.
After an hour has passed, uncover, and sprinkle the chicken with sesame seeds. Bake, uncovered, for another 30 minutes.
Prepare the rice, and top immediately with the chicken. We poured the extra sauce over our rice, because we loved the flavor so much.
