When you have a hankering for sesame chicken, you know how it is—you’ve gotta have it immediately, and nothing else will do. Fortunately, this dish is super speedy to whip up in your very own kitchen. In just 20 minutes (yes, you read that right), you can dig into steamy rice topped with tender chicken and carrots in a stellar sauce that’s tangy, nutty, and just a little bit sweet. For a finishing touch, it’s drizzled with sriracha lime mayo, then sprinkled with scallions and sesame seeds to really take it over the top. Time to conquer that craving, folks.
