Quick and Easy Hoisin Stir fry

It doesn't get much simpler. I was in a hurry. This feeds two. You can double or triple it easily.

1 cup rice (any kind) - cooked according to directions
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut into thin strips
1/2 c hoisin sauce, or more if you like.
(in the oriental foods section of the grocery store)
1 cup of matchstick carrots (in bags near the
bagged salad in the grocery store)

2 bunches of scallions cut into 1" lengths and chopped lengthwise into pretty little strips.

1/4 c sesame seeds, no need to toast them.
oil for stir frying - whatever kind you like. I used some sesame oil and canola

Marinate the chicken in the hoisin sauce for at least two hours or overnight.

Put some sort of oil in a skillet to coat the bottom and heat to medium high. Add chicken strips marinated in hoisin with the sauce and leave them on one side for three minutes. Flip them over and leave them on the other side for three minutes. OR, stirfry insteaad. Now add carrots and onions and stir fry till crisp tender, a few minutes. Dump over rice, sprinkle with sesame seeds, and enjoy! If you have more time you could add some garlic, ginger, or whatever... it was good as is, however and very quick :)
