  • 1
    In small bowl, mix Sauce ingredients. Place half of the sauce in a small serving bowl for dipping; set aside.
  • 2
    Line cookie sheet with paper towels. Place 1/4 cup of the flour in medium bowl. In small bowl, beat egg and 2 tablespoons soy sauce. In large bowl, stir together remaining 1/2 cup flour, the cornstarch, ginger, garlic powder and salt.
  • 3
    Add chicken tenders to medium bowl with flour, and toss to coat; shake off excess flour. Add chicken to egg mixture, then add to flour and cornstarch mixture; toss to coat. Discard any remaining breading ingredients.
  • 4
    In 12-inch skillet, heat vegetable oil over medium-high heat until hot. Reduce heat to medium. Cook chicken in two batches in oil 5 to 7 minutes, turning once, until chicken is no longer pink in center. Transfer chicken to cookie sheet.
  • 5
    While chicken is still hot, brush tops with remaining sauce. Immediately sprinkle with sesame seed. Serve with reserved sauce for dipping.

Expert Tips

  • For best results, allow oil to get hot again between batches.
  • Need a little green? Traditional Korean fried chicken is often topped with thinly sliced green onions. If desired, sprinkle some on the chicken after brushing with the sauce.
