Easy, fast, delicious, and kid-friendly. Can't ask for more than that, especially during a crazy week. Fantastic.

I really liked this sesame chicken! I didn't serve it with rice, though, I used noodles. The sauce was easy and fantastic. This is the perfect weeknight meal.

I really loved this sesame chicken, especially the sauce. It was really quick to make in the pressure cooker too. I gave it to the kids, and they loved it. If you want a thinner sauce, use 1 teaspoon cornstarch instead of two. So delicious, especially with brown rice.

The recipe was easy to follow and turned out well. It was a little spicy and I added a teaspoon of honey. I might add a little more next time.

I didn't add sesame seeds, but still enjoyed the rich flavor of this dish. This paired great with spiralized zucchini noodles.

Received my MultiPot today and have already tried this recipe. My husband and I both loved it! I altered the recipe slightly and reduced the crushed red pepper to 1/2 tsp., and added a generous teaspoon of minced ginger. I think the recipe should also have called for a bit more liquid. On the whole, a very good dish and we enjoyed it thoroughly!

This recipe is good. However it is spicy if you follow the recipe and is not kid friendly because of the spice. With that being said, I like spicy so I thought it was good! Next time I will leave the crushed red pepper out to make it kid friendly!

Oh my goodness! This dish was so good. I didn’t have any sesame seeds, but the dish came out great. I wish they had where you could add a picture of the food you cook cause I would love to see how everyone’s dish came out.

Lovely meal our favourite so far......I found it a bit salty towards the end, not sure if it’s my soya sauce or if I used a bit too much but will experiment next time.
