Ginger Sesame Chicken with Sesame Soy Roasted Vegetables. It was pure perfection on Sunday night when I made this. Most recipes call for half a cup of honey and flour. This version is sweet and crispy as is. I replaced honey with its sweeter counterpart — agave nectar so less is required. The fresh ginger and scallions add a whole new depth to this dish. By browning both in sizzling oil before cooking the chicken allows more flavor to come forth. The roasted vegetables are a green side and the perfect complement to the sticky rice and sweet and ginger chicken.
