Turned out really well. I want the wok, but one piece at a time as they say. 3/4 cup brown rice 3 tablespoons honey 2 tablespoons sesame seeds 2 tablespoons soy sauce 1 garlic clove, finely chopped or crushed with a garlic press 2 large egg whites 1/4 cup cornstarch. 1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, cut into 2-inch chunks (I used skinless boneless thighs) Coarse salt and ground pepper 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, such as safflower 4 scallions, thinly sliced 1 1/2 pounds broccoli, cut into large florets, stems peeled and thinly sliced 1. Place a steamer basket in a large saucepan, and fill with 1 inch water; set aside for broccoli. Cook rice according to package instructions. 2. Meanwhile, make sauce: In a small bowl, combine honey, sesame seeds, soy sauce, and garlic; set aside. In a large bowl, whisk together egg whites and cornstarch. Add chicken; season with salt and pepper, and toss to coat. 3. In a large (cast iron) skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high. Add half the chicken; cook, turning occasionally, until golden and opaque throughout, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a plate; repeat with remaining tablespoon oil and chicken. Return all the chicken to skillet; add reserved sauce and scallions, and toss to coat. 4. Meanwhile, place saucepan with steamer basket over high heat; bring water to a boil. Add broccoli, and cook until crisp-tender, 4 to 6 minutes. Serve sesame chicken with broccoli and rice. Credit https://www.marthastewart.com/313256/lighter-sesame-chicken?printview

Haha thanks! It’s simple but good I think. Obligatory submission history view - I’m a little one dimensional compared to you it would seem. Nice water creatures!

Woks and wok hei are a thing of beauty, but they're just not possible in a conventional Western kitchen setup. At the very least, a gas burner with a ring can get close. IRONically, CI woks are very traditional and they're good but CS is the best for movement. ​ [https://www.seriouseats.com/2014/05/the-wok-mon-converts-your-home-burner-into-a-wok-range-solution.html](https://www.seriouseats.com/2014/05/the-wok-mon-converts-your-home-burner-into-a-wok-range-solution.html)

We've found the skillets work fine for stir fry. The wok is going on the sale table at the swap meet.
