Easy Sesame Chicken

Guys I can't even begin to tell you how much I love this sesame chicken. The flavors are incredible and it comes together in no time at all. I've already made it twice in the last couple of weeks and would honestly love to make it every week if I could.
I love how great the sauce is and it complements the seasoned, breaded chicken so well. This chicken on a bed of white rice is my kind of comfort food.
Be sure to make you and your family some because I guarantee you'll already have most of the ingredients on hand!

Easy Sesame Chicken
Adapted from Let’s Dish Recipes
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1/8 tsp. ground ginger
1/4 tsp. garlic salt
1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
Dash of ground cloves
Dash of ground cinnamon
1-2 large chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces
1/3 cup teriyaki sauce (I use the Kikkoman brand)
1/3 cup honey
1 Tbsp. soy sauce
1 tsp. sesame oil
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1 Tbsp. sesame seeds (toasted if desired)

1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine flour, black pepper, ground ginger, garlic salt, red pepper flakes, cloves and cinnamon.
2. Place chicken into the bag and shake to coat.
3. In a small bowl, stir together teriyaki sauce, honey, soy sauce and sesame oil.
4. Heat olive oil in a large skillet or over medium-high heat. Using tongs, remove chicken from bag, shaking off the excess flour, and place into skillet. Brown on both sides until middle is no longer pink.
5. Reduce heat to low. Mix in teriyaki and honey mixture and stir until sauce bubbles and thickens.
6. Stir in sesame seeds and serve immediately over rice.
