Sesame Chicken Bites with Honey-Mustard Sauce

Sesame Chicken Bites

Happy Monday y’all!

Hope you guys had a great Easter! I spent the weekend  with my boys visiting both sides of our families in VA. It’s always nice to get away, especially this time  of the year, when everything is blooming and coming back to life to a place like VA, which is very country compared to our neck of the woods. Pace of life is much slower, backyards are much bigger, and people are definitely much nicer. I guess it’s a southern thing? My co-worker said to never ask a southerner how they are doing unless you are prepared to literally hear them tell you “how they are doing” and it’s so true! I love country folks :)

Our Easter weekend consisted of little bit of four wheeling, dirk bike ridin’ (boys of course), outside marshmallow roasting, easter egg hunting, and definitely ton of food. Oh, the food! Russians are all about food, so anywhere we went we were greeted with scrumptious spread of meats, salads, and sweets. But that’s what holidays are all about, right? Overeating and spending time with loved ones? Definitely for me. I know I will be doing a little detoxifying after this weekend and if y’all like me and need a little pick me up there is always Green Detox Salad to get you going.

Sesame Chicken Bites

I’m starting off the week with a simple, delicious, and kid friendly idea. Sesame Chicken Bites remind me of the famous Bang Bang Shrimp but only with chicken and minus the spiciness. Saucy on the inside and crispy on the outside, paired with homemade honey-mustard sauce. They pop so easily in your mouth as is or as a topping on your favorite salad.

Simple and effortless. My kind of Monday.

      Hi Sarah! They are super delicious (saucy on the inside and crispy on the outside) . Cilantro is a must in my household. I put it in everything :) Enjoy!
