WHAT TO SERVE WITH SESAME CHICKEN When I order this chicken from my favorite Chinese restaurant, they always serve it with broccoli, which is just how I want it. And, it’s the perfect simple dinner with a side of sticky white rice, fried rice or other healthy steamed veggies.

In addition, I’ve used this chicken as a chicken poke bowl, and it’s delicious. Make a bed of edamame and pile on the toppings, such as sliced carrot sticks, wonton strips, and scallions.

PANDA EXPRESS SESAME CHICKEN COPYCAT This Asian air fryer sesame chicken differs mainly in that it is cooked using an air fryer rather than a deep fryer. The delicious sauce is still drizzled over the crispy chicken pieces. Serve it up with air fryer egg rolls for the ultimate combo!
