There are those days when best intentions are laid waste and you forget to do the most basic things… like pull the chicken out to thaw. Alas, these moments give us opportunities to get creative.
Or, at least, that is what I tell myself.
Regardless, on one such evening, I put frozen chicken breast strips in a casserole dish. Mixed up a marinade and poured it over. Then, sprinkled the entire thing with sesame seeds.
The results were delicious.
As the Asian Sesame Chicken was cooking in the oven, I was placing water to boil for chicken-flavored ramen and preparing the vegetables to saute.
Any vegetables would be great but I chose sliced zucchini and carrots with diced onions. Just heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add your vegetables and cook, stirring occasionally until your desired tenderness.
When serving, cut the chicken into pieces. Ladle ramen into a bowl and then add a layer of vegetables. Top with the chicken. Amazing!
