One of my favorites. This recipe taste even better than the take out you get.

"Great recipe, I added some hot pepper flakes for a little more zip, and cut down a little on the sugar on the sauce. It also goes well over shrimp with a little added lime juice to the sauce"

- Boodrann


Are you making this? 
3 boneless Chichen Breast; cubed
2 tablespoon Soy sauce
1 tablespoon Rice Wine
1 teaspoon Sesame oil
2 tablespoon All purpose flour
2 tablespoon Cornstarch
2 tablespoon Water
1/4 teaspoon Baking Powder
Sesame Sauce
1/2 cup Water
1 cup Chicken broth
1/8 cup Rice vinegar
1/4 cup Cornstarch
1 cup Sugar
2 tablespoon Soy sauce
2 tablespoon Sesame oil
2 cloves Garlic; minced
1 tablespoon Sesame seeds; toasted

Original recipe makes 4



Cut the chicken into desired sized cubes.

Mix the marinade ingredients together and put into a plastic bag or air tight container.

Add the chicken to the marinade and marinate for 30 minutes in the refrigerator.

While the chicken is marinating you can make the sauce.

Mix all of the Sesame sauce ingredients together and put in a pot.

Bring the ingredients to a boil, stirring all the time.

Once it has come to a boil remove from the heat and set aside.

Now take a skillet and add enough oil to fry the chicken pieces.

Take the chicken from the refrigerator and take out of the bag.

Do not rinse or remove the marinade from the chicken.

Fry the chicken until crispy brown.

Then drain on a paper towel.

This will take a few batches to do.

When the chicken is all done set aside a minute and let drain.

While the chicken is draining put the sesame sauce back on the heat and bring to a boil again.

Once the sauce is boiling take off the heat.

You can either dump the chicken into the pan with the sauce or put the chciken in a platter and pour the sauce over the chicken.

Once the chicken has been coated, sprinkle the toated sesame seeds.

This is better than Sesame Chicken I tried in restaurants. I did not have rice wine, but I substituted with rice wine vinegar.

My family and I did not enjoy this at all. Very strange flavor. I decided to make this based on the picture and the fact we love sesame chicken. This was a huge disappoint.
