“Don't miss this succulent braised chicken in deeply flavorful sesame ginger gravy. Serve it over rice for an easy and satisfying dinner. Adapted from a recipe by Becky Low.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine flour, salt, and pepper; toss chicken with flour mixture to coat evenly.
  2. Heat a non-stick skillet then coat it with sesame oil; add garlic and chicken; fry until browned, stirring only infrequently; to keep chicken from sticking to skillet add a little broth as needed; place mushrooms on top of chicken and add 1/4 cup chicken broth; reduce heat to low, cover and simmer 10-12 minutes, adding chicken broth and stirring every few minutes as needed to keep chicken from drying and sticking to pan.
  3. At end of the 10-12 minutes braising time, stir in 1-3 tablespoons additional broth until sauce is preferred consistency; stir in Sesame Ginger dressing; serve over cooked rice; sprinkle each serving with toasted sesame seeds.
  4. NOTE: Sesame Ginger dressing may be found in the refrigerated salad dressing section of your grocery store ~ I found Litehouse brand Sesame Ginger Dressing & Sauce next to my store's fresh produce.
