You're Gonna Want to Make This Whole30 Sesame Chicken Dinner — Even If You're Not on the Diet
Dana Beninati will make this protein-packed dish during a free live class this Sunday on the Food Network Kitchen app!
Anytime you decide to cut a specific food group out of your diet — let alone four major ones during the Whole30 diet — you run the risk of getting bored of the foods you’re actually allowed to eat. Without grains, dairy, sugar and legumes (all of which are forbidden during the 30-day detox that’s meant to get you off over-processed foods and onto a more whole food-focused diet) your options might start to feel limited. But we promise you, they’re not.
Food Network Kitchen’s recipe for Whole30 Sesame Chicken and Broccoli Rice is a perfect example. And lucky you, Dana Beninati will be teaching a class on this dish live for FREE on the Food Network Kitchen app this Sunday at 6 p.m. EST, which means it’s available to watch even if you haven’t subscribed yet.
Broccoli is the star of this healthy, protein-packed dish. The stem is transformed into broccoli rice, and the florets are steamed for an additional topping. But the flavor really comes from the chicken, which is doused in a combination of coconut aminos (a Whole30-compliant soy sauce replacement), orange juice, sesame oil, chile flakes, garlic and ginger. It’s the perfect meal for those nights where you are ready to give up and order take out and will cure any sweet or savory craving you have.
Whether you’ve jumped on the Whole30 train or are just looking for a healthy alternative to your go-to indulgence meal, this recipe is worth giving a try. Tune in to Dana’s class this Sunday, January 12, 2020 at 6 p.m. EST, and cook along with the Food Network Kitchen, and master a meal you’ll want to make all year-round.
