Sesame Chicken and Sesame Green Beans

I don’t know about you, but I love Asian flavored food. I love cooking with sesame oil. It has lots of flavor and the aroma gets stronger as it cooks.

Here is my recipe for sesame chicken and sesame green beans. It’s a perfect combination that works well with each other.
