Apricot Sesame Chicken & Shrimp

Chinese takeout has been my saving grace on more occasions than one, but that shit gets expensive. Next time, whip up some sweet and sour chicken and shrimp, for the sake of double the protein, and both your wallet and stomach will thank you. All it takes is a few ingredients and only one pan so you don't really have an excuse.
