If you like sesame chicken, and don't mind it not being the typical battered and fried, this dish is for you.  It's easy, it's pretty fast, and it's all done on a sheet pan baby! 

2 lbs cubed chicken
2 lbs broccoli florets
2 tbsp olive oil
black and white sesame seeds

1 cup Soy sauce
2 tbsp rice vinegar
1.5 sesame oil
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tbsp garlic powder
Mix up marinade
reserve 1/2 cup
Place chicken into marinade and allow it to sit for 4 hours or overnight
Heat oven to 350
Take chicken out of marinade and dry off with a paper towel
Place on a baking sheet, spaced apart
Cook for about 10 minutes
Add broccoli
Cook for another 20 minutes or until chicken is cooked through
On stovetop, cook down the reserved marinade
It will thicken up
