This is layout #7 using the July Scraptastic Kits... it took 50 minutes to complete. This is a layout of our favorite meal... Sesame Chicken... it's so yummy.  I will share the recipe with you. Here it is:

                                                          SESAME CHICKEN

3 Tbsp      soya sauce
2               cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 Tbsp      Sesame oil
1 Tbsp      Rice-wine vinegar
3 Cups      brocoli flowerettes
1               yellow, red, orange pepper, seeded and sliced
2 tsp          Sesame seeds
1 pkg        Spaghettini
3 Tbsp      Vegetable oil
1 Tbsp       finely chopped, peeled ginger root
1 tsp           sugar
1 tsp           cornstarch
6                 green onions
1/4-1/2 tsp  crushed red pepper
1 1/2 lbs      boneless, skinless chicken (3/4 inch stips)

  1. In 1 cup glass measuring cup, combine soya sauce, 2 tbsp vegetable oil, sesame oil, garlic, ginger root, vinegar and sugar. Stir in enough water to measure 1 cup. ( I make about 4 cups of this)
  2. Pour 1 cup soya sauce mixture over chicken in a medium size bowl and set aside to marinate while completing the rest of recipe. (I usually make about 4 cups of the mixture --- 1 to marinate meat 2 cups to pour over before serving and the last one I keep in the fridge to add on left overs)
  3. In 5 quarts kettle or saucepan, heat 3 quarts water to boiling, salt lightly, if desired and add noodles and broccoli flowerettes. Cook until noodles cooked: drain immediately, rinse noodles and broccoli under cold water, and drain again. Transfer noodles and broccoli to large serving bowl and set aside.
  4. Coarsely chop tops of green onions and add to bowl with noodles. Finely chop white part of green onions. In large skillet, heat remaining tablespoon of vegetable oil over medium heat. Add white part of onion and the yellow, red and orange peppers. Saute until peppers are just tender, about 5 minutes. With slotted spoon, remove vegetables to bowl with noodles.
  5. In same skillet, cook chicken with marinate into batches, until golden brown on both sides and cooked through, about 7-9 minutes. Remove chicken to bowl with noodles and vegetables.
  6. Add cornstarch and crushed red pepper to soy-sauce mixture, stir to dissolve cornstarch. Pour mixture into skillet and heat to boiling, stirring constantly, until slightly thickened.  Remove from heat, add sesame seeds, and pour over noodles, vegetables and chicken, toss until sauce id distributed. Serve immediately.
Like I said in video we make a huge batch of this so step #1 I make about 4 cups... the ingredients up top is for 1 cup of that mixture... what I do is make 1 cup at a time but obviously it would mean more of each ingredient needed to make recipe for example I use more like 12 tbsp of soya sauce, a whole garlic, 8 Tbsp of Sesame oil etc... hope this makes sense..

Enjoy! So good...
