If there is one cuisine I’m always in the mood for, it’s pretty much Chinese food. There’s a comfort factor involved, wonton soup makes me happy when I’m sick, dumplings make me happy all the time, and sesame chicken reminds me of our weekly Chinese take out dinners growing up. Here’s the thing about growing up though, sometimes those favorite take-out Chinese meals don’t always agree with you like they did as a kid.
Fried chicken with a sticky sweet sauce? Sounds great but in reality you should be picking out a healthier option.
Now while my Chinese food fix is limited to the delicacies over in Brooklyn Chinatown, I can still curb those cravings at home by cooking up a quick stir fry with the help of McCormick’s skillet sauces.
The Sesame Chicken Stir Fry Skillet Sauce is bursting full of flavor like ginger, garlic and soy sauce. With just a little prep of your vegetables and chicken and you can have a healthy dinner on the table in a blink of an eye.
To up our vegetable factor, besides broccoli florets in our stir fry, I’ve taken the stems and noodled them up with my trusty spiralizer. While you don’t end up with perfectly long broccoli noodles, it’s a nice change than just a big bowl of rice to serve with the stir fry. Of course, you do need a lot of stems to make this a filling meal, so I used the noodles as a way to cut out about half the rice I’d normally serve it with.
Besides the Sesame Chicken Stir Fry Skillet Sauce (which would taste great with seafood or pork too), McCormick has 6 more great skillet sauces such as the Smoky Applewood BBQ Chicken with Bacon, Taco with Chipotle & Garlic, Sweet & Smoky Sloppy Joes, Fire Roasted Chili, fAjita with Roasted Chile, Garlic & Lime and Sicilian Chicken with Tomato, Basil & Garlic. You can find all of these great sauces at McCormick’s website and recipes on their Pinterest page.
