I'm back with another recipe challenge from Canadian Living. This month's recipe is sesame chicken with fennel and orange salad, and it was delicious! I did most of the prep while Hannah was sleeping, then threw it all together right before we were ready to eat. I used meatless chicken breasts to make this meal vegetarian, but I think next time I'll marinate the "chicken" overnight to help it absorb the flavours even more.
It was my first time working with fresh fennel, although Adam uses fennel seeds in his cooking often, and I had to Google how to prepare it. The good news? It was easy.
The salad was filling enough for dinner, and it was still nice and crispy as a leftover the next day. I wasn't sure about the orange slices at first, but the recipe would not be the same without them (so good!). Find the recipe here and try it for yourself.
