Sesame Chicken - better than takeout! And so easy!

Happy Tuesday! 

Moving day is fast approaching. We have less than a week left in our current house which is exciting and terrifying. Exciting because, well, moving is exciting. Terrifying because we’re less than a week out and we still don’t have movers scheduled. Like, we have carpet cleaners scheduled and all our stuff has to be out by that day but the dang Army is totally dragging you-know-what on their part in this.

Also, yesterday my husband was randomly all, “Maybe we should live on post” after YEARS of complaining about living on post here in Colorado. 

So we have no movers and are currently undecided on where to live. 

But the kids have been withdrawn from school (they’ll still be going until the day we leave though), the house has been purged of all crap, and we’re almost out of here. For real. 

I’ve been trying to work my way through the food in the freezer and pantry but it’s sooo hard. There’s only so much you can do with a container of oats, some frozen salmon, and a 3 bags of Cheetos. But I’m trying. 

I did have all the ingredients for my favorite Chinese takeout: Sesame Chicken! This recipe is a favorite of all 3 of the kids and we never have even a single bite of chicken left over. And it’s really easy! There’s no batter, no deep frying, just a simple chicken recipe!
