Instructions Checklist
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the tahini, soy sauce, honey, garlic, sesame oil, crushed red pepper and black pepper. Set aside.

  • In a large pot of salted boiling water, blanch the Brussels sprouts for 30 seconds. Drain and set aside.

  • In a large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Add the chicken and stir-fry over moderately high heat until no longer pink and cooked through, about 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer to a plate.

  • Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil in the skillet. Add the Brussels sprouts and cook over moderately high heat until they start to turn soft, about 6 to 8 minutes.

  • Stir the tahini sauce into Brussels sprouts and then add the chicken and cook until warmed through, about 1 to 2 minutes. Season with additional soy sauce if desired. Serve with rice.
