More About This Recipe
Throw away the take-out menus – this homemade Sesame Chicken is that good.
No Chinese cooking repertoire is complete without this classic Sesame Chicken. Tender bites of chicken are marinated, coated, deep-fried to crispy perfection, then smothered in a lusciously sticky sauce with the flavor of honey and toasted sesame.
Steam the rice and whip up the sauce while the chicken is frying, then all you have to do is toss the chicken in the sauce and serve it on a mound of fluffy white rice sprinkled with sesame seeds. It's fast, simple, and so delicious you'll wonder why you didn't start making your own Chinese take-out sooner!
Just be careful when you start inviting your friends over: Before long you'll have the whole town knocking at your door to inquire about the new Chinese take-out joint everyone's raving about!
