Before I get into this sesame chicken goodness, can we first talk about last night’s episode of Grey’s? I’ve been following this show for years and although the show has plummeted in the more recent years, I’ve never missed an episode (yeah, I’m that much of a loyal Grey’s fan). But last night’s episode was quite amazing. I don’t think I’ve cried like that since the finale of season 6 when the shooter came in and killed off like half the cast. I mean the minute Avery flipped over that legal pad with the new name of the hospital – wow – tears just started streaming down my face. I think I started blubbering at some point.
I’m still a bit shaken up about it so if today’s post doesn’t make too much sense, it’s because tv world has totally taken over reality.
Okay so now I’m ready to talk food.
Remember when I posted about those broiled salmon gyros to bring awareness for heart disease? Well I’ve partnered up with Mazola in honor of National Nutrition Month to encourage people to take another look before cooking to ensure that you are being kind to your heart.
The first place to start is with your cooking oil, particularly corn oil. It actually has more cholesterol-blocking plant sterols than any other cooking oil and has four times as many as olive oil and 40% more than canola oil, making it a great addition to a heart-healthy meal like this sesame chicken.
See, I love ordering Chinese take-out from time to time but you’d be surprised to see how easy it is to make right at home. Plus, you get to control the fat content, salt content and now the oil content, deep frying these babies into heart-health sesame perfection.
Just be sure have Sriracha when serving, and I guarantee you that you’ll be wanting this dish every day of the week!
