Sesame chicken is one of our favorites when we’re craving Chinese food! Served with fresh steamed green beans and jasmine rice, you might want to consider making a double batch as the family will go back for seconds and thirds!

This recipe is one that I worked on many, many times before I finally perfected it. I don’t like a heavy soy sauce taste, so I use less, but if you like a much richer sauce, you can add an additional soy sauce once it has been prepared.

You’ll Need:
2-3 Pounds boneless skinless chicken, cut into thin strips against the grain
2 T. Soy Sauce
1 T. Rice Vinegar
1 1/2 c. Chix Broth
1/8 c. Rice Vinegar (not White Vinegar!!)
1 c. Sugar
2 T. Soy Sauce
2 T. Sesame Oil
1/2 tsp Minced Garlic
1/4 tsp Chili Powder
Sesame Seeds (Optional)

First, Slice 3-4 Boneless skinless chicken Breasts into thin strips.

Place them in a container or large ziploc bag and add the following marinade:

* 2 T. Soy Sauce
* 1 T. Rice Vinegar

Allow the chicken to marinate for at least 30 minutes.

In a Medium Saucepan combine the following:

* 1 1/2 c. Chix Broth
* 1/8 c. Rice Vinegar (not White Vinegar!!)
* 1 c. Sugar
* 2 T. Soy Sauce

Stir over medium heat, dissolve 2 T. Cornstarch in 1/2 c. cold water. Once the sauce starts to bubble, add the dissolved cornstarch to the sauce. Bring to a boil over med heat until sauce is no longer cloudy.

Heat up your fry daddy, you’re going to need it!

Combine 2 c. flour, 1 c. Cornstarch in a bowl and mix well. Sprinkle with pepper.

In another bowl, beat 1 or 2 eggs with 2 tablespoons water.

Prepare your chicken strips for frying:

Liss Notes: This particular recipe is our Family’s Favorite Sesame Chicken recipe. If you’d like, you can add more soy sauce for a richer sauce.
