chicken stir-fry with black sesame seeds

This Honey and Black Sesame Seed Chicken Stir Fry is easy to make and packed with tons of nutrients and protein.  Add your favorite veggies and make the delicious sauce with honey, coconut aminos, and toasted sesame oil, and you’re all set! 

Marinate the chicken (or substitute it with Tofu to make it vegan) for a few hours, and once you’re ready to make dinner, you’ll have a delicious and flavorful meal ready in 20 minutes! 

That’s one thing I love about this recipe – it’s quick and easy to make. 

The sauce is so easy and delicious too!! 

  • Honey – gives a touch of sweetness.
  • Toasted Sesame Oil – gives this dish a nutty taste. 
  • Coconut Aminos – gives a fantastic savory flavor that’s soy-free.
  • Shallot, garlic, and ginger – give a delicious mild flavor.
  • Lime juice – give a slight acidity to balance it all out. 

The veggies that go really well with the sauce:

  • Broccoli 
  • Carrots
  • Green Cabbage 
  • Celery
  • Mushrooms

Why black sesame seeds? Because they are richer in flavor than white sesame seeds! YUM! If you don’t have any on hand and are unsure where or what to buy, I love Spiceology’s Black Sesame Seeds and Terrasoul’s Black Sesame Seeds.  

I hope you all love this quick and easy dinner meal! Enjoy!

Yields 4 servings
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 shallot minced
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 tbsp fresh ginger minced
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 2 tbsp coconut aminos or sub soy sauce
  • pinch of salt and black pepper
  • 1 lb Chicken breast or chicken tenderloins or sub tofu for vegan, chopped in cubes or strips
  • 1 tsp sesame seed oil
  • 1 cup broccoli roughly chopped
  • 2-3 carrots sliced
  • 2-3 celery stalks sliced
  • 3 ½ oz rice vermicelli noodles
  • fresh cilantro chopped or pick leaves
  • green onions sliced or chopped
  • black sesame seeds
  • Add the sauce ingredients to a bowl and mix to combine. Add chicken (or tofu) and toss to combine. Add parchment paper on top and place in the fridge for up to 2 hours before cooking. 
  • Add chicken and sauce to a skillet over medium heat, and cook for 3-5 minutes on one side, flip over and cook for an additional 3-5 minutes. Keep an eye on the chicken to see if it needs only 3 minutes on each side or longer, depending on the meat's thickness, to ensure it cooks evenly.  
  • Remove cooked chicken from the skillet and set aside.  Using the same skillet, add 1 teaspoon of toasted sesame seed oil and add the veggies you prefer: broccoli, carrots, celery, cabbage, mushrooms, brussels sprouts. Saute for about 5-7 minutes until all the veggies start to wilt and soften. Add chicken back to the pan and toss to combine.
  • Prepare vermicelli by following the instructions on the back of the label. Once cooked, add noodles to the chicken and veggies. Toss to combine.
  • Divide food into serving bowls or plates, top with cilantro, green onions, and black sesame seeds to serve.
