Honey Sesame Chicken

This one goes out to Jen H... :)

An unfamous person once said, "Recipes are not made, they are passed from one cook's hands to another's, who then realizes that she doesn't have all of the ingredients so she just wings it."
And that's pretty much how this recipe came to be.
My cousin made this for my parents once, and I have loved it ever since. But, as hectic dinner hours go, this is my cheater-version of what was once even tastier.

Honey Sesame Chicken
2 lbs. boneless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces

Pan fry the chicken in a little evoo until it's cooked through and even has a little carmelization on the outside. Then turn down the heat and add the following ingredients, stirring as you go, to make a cheater-version one-pot meal.
1/3 cup soy sauce
1/3 cup (or a little more) honey
1 tbl dry sherry
1 clove garlic, minced or grated
1 tsp grated fresh ginger
2 tbl sesame seeds.

(If you don't have fresh ginger, just sprinkle some dried stuff in.)

Raise the heat to cook the sauce through, and you're done.
Serve it over some rice. We like basmati-- if you haven't tried it, have a go. Just double rinse it and add a little more water than usual. It's a very, er, nice rice. :)
