SESAME CHICKEN RECIPE

This sesame bird is crispy chicken portions tossed in a candy and savory honey sesame sauce. This version is even higher than what you'll get at a restaurant.

 
we have Asian meals as a minimum once a week, a number of our favorites encompass lemon hen, candy and sour hen, and lettuce wraps. Sesame chook is another one I make regularly, that delicious sauce simply can’t be beat.

this is one of those copycat recipes for honey sesame chicken – you understand, the battered crispy bird tossed in a candy and tangy sauce that’s discovered at locations like P.F. Changs and Panda express? i have to say, I think this selfmade version is even higher than what I’ve had in restaurants. My children maximum truely agree.
