Frequently Asked Questions:

            Is this a version of Chinese Sesame Chicken?

Many people may think so, and that is fine, if your family likes it and loves Chinese, go ahead and call it Chinese.

            What should I serve with this meal?

Personally, my family does consider this similar to Chinese, so I tend to make a skillet of fried rice to serve with this. However, Parmesan smashed potatoes also taste phenomenal, and of course a side of roasted mixed vegetables.

            Can I freeze this dish?

Once the food has cooled to room temperature, it can be placed into a freezer safe container and placed in the freezer. It will remain good for up to 4 months.

            Can I store this in the refrigerator?

Certainly, when the food is wrapped tightly or placed into an airtight container, it will last in the refrigerator for 3 to 4 days.
