Yield: Serves 4
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 19 minutes
Total Time: 29 minutes

⅓ cup Kikkoman® Soy Sauce   
2 tablespoons + 1 tablespoon Kikkoman® Sesame Oil, divided
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon garlic, minced
2 teaspoons ginger, minced
2 teaspoons cornstarch or flour
1-pound chicken breast, diced
½ cup red bell pepper, diced
1 cup pea pods
½ cup carrots, sliced
4 cups cooked white rice
1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds
¼ cup green onion, chopped


  1. Stir together soy sauce, 2 tablespoons sesame oil, lime juice, honey, garlic, ginger, and cornstarch in a small bowl until cornstarch is dissolved. Set aside.
  2. Heat remaining sesame oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat for 2 minutes. Blot chicken with paper towel to remove moisture on surface. Add chicken pieces to pan and brown on both sides for 4 minutes on each side. Reduce heat to medium and stir in bell pepper, pea pods and carrots. Cook 5 minutes longer.
  3. Stir in sauce and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to low and simmer 3-4 minutes longer or until sauce has thickened. Serve hot alongside rice garnished with sesame seeds and green onion.
  4. To Freeze: Cool to room temperature. Transfer rice and sesame lime chicken to freezer safe glass dishes and freeze for up to 1 month. Thaw in refrigerator before reheating.
