Last month I received a hamper from Shop For Change India who work towards empowering the Farmers and make sure that everything is Fair Trade. Fair trade is a market led solution to poverty which aims to use trade, not aid, to improve livelihoods for disadvantaged farmers and artisans and promote sustainability. You guys should definitely visit their website and check out the awesome initiative taken towards the betterment of the lesser fortunate.
In my hamper there were various things, but the one thing I was eager to try out was their Organic Honey and I am so glad I did. While I gorged on the gorgeous Honey (I am not even a Honey person), my brother put together this quick Honey Glazed Sesame Chicken.
Honey Glazed Sesame Chicken.
Recipe : Sibling.
500 gm Chicken.
2 Tbsp Soy Sauce
2 Green Chilies, Chopped
4 Cloves of Garlic, finely chopped
An inch of Ginger, finely chopped
Juice of 1 Lemon
3 Tbsp Honey
3 Tbsp Sesame Oil
1 Tbsp Toasted Sesame Seeds
1 Tbsp Vinegar
Marinate the Chicken in Honey, Lemon Juice, Salt and Pepper for 30 minutes. Toast Sesame seeds on medium heat in a dry pan till fragrant. Set aside.
In the same pan, add in the Oil with Garlic. We add the Garlic in Oil before because we do not want it to burn, it cooks as the Oil warms up. Add in the Ginger and Chili and saute for a minute.
Add in the Soy and Vinegar, give it a good stir and add in the Chicken.
Stir to incorporate, and let it cook for 2 minutes on a high flame, then cover this beauty up and let it cook through on medium low for 10 minutes. Turn the heat off and let it rest for 5 minutes. Sprinkle with Toasted Sesame Seeds and serve!
You could have this with Fried Rice or Noodles, but I finished them as they were since I just could not resist!
