Sesame honey chicken

Been looking around for a nice chicken recipes to cook for my friends. I am looking for something different besides the usual sweet sour chicken. Busy looking around and found this recipe that sounds interesting. Took the first bite, the juicy chicken and the amazing sauce had me hooked from the first bite. If you are craving some amazing chinese food or just in the mood for something different, give this recipe a try.

  • 2 large boneless skinless chciken breasts
  • 2 tbsp toasted sesame seeds
  • 2 spring onions, sliced
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp sesame oil
  • a dash of ground white pepper
  • 1/4 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 cup plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 cup water ( or as much as needed to make a smooth batter)
  • 3 tbsp corn flour
  • salt to taste
  • 1 tsbp vegetable oil
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • salt to taste
  • 2 tbsp tomato ketchup
  • 1 tbsp white distilled vinegar
  • a dash of ground pepper

Cut chicken into 1"chunks and in a bowl combine all the marinade ingredients and mix well. Add the chicken and coat evenly. Cover and marinade for 30 minutes or longer in the refrigerator.

Meanwhile, in a separate bowl, combine all the batter ingredients and mix thoroughly.The batter should be thick enough to coat the chicken but thin enough to flow around the pieces. Set aside.

Using a fork, remove the pieces chicken from the marinade and dip them into the batter to coat evenly (one by one). Deep fry the chicken in batches in your deep fryer for about 10 minutes or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.

In your wok combine the sauce ingredients and warm over medium heat. Bring to a boil while stirring and simmer until sauce slightly thickens. Add in the fried chicken to the sauce and coat well. garnish with the sliced spring onions and toasted sesame seeds.
