How to Make Sesame Chicken

Chick. Cut your chicken breasts into bite-sized pieces. Put the chicken, soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil and sugar in a bag, marinate for 1-2 hours, then drain the chicken.

Add vegetable oil to a shallow pan over medium heat. Combine cornstarch, flour, salt and pepper in a large Ziploc bag.

In 3 batches, add the chicken to the flour mixture, shake gently, then add to the frying pan and fry until golden brown. Blot dry with paper towels.

Sesame Chicken Sauce: In a medium saucepan combine honey, oyster sauce, chili sauce, ketchup, soy sauce and water. Bring to a boil, then simmer until the sauce starts to thicken.

Hints and substitutions:

  • Rice Vinegar: You can easily substitute apple cider vinegar or lemon juice.
  • sugar: Either white or brown sugar works well for this recipe.
  • Make the sauce ahead of time (Store up to 2 days in the refrigerator)
  • Use the correct oil temperature: Keep the oil around 350 degrees Fahrenheit. If the oil is too cold, the chicken will become too greasy. If the oil is too hot and the chicken is undercooked, it will burn on the outside.
  • A slightly healthier version: You can skip the coating and sauté the chicken breasts in a little oil and continue seasoning as directed.

How to make it crispy?

Fried chicken will be crispy. If you want a crispier coating, try doubling the coating. Remove the chicken from the marinade and toss the pieces into the cornstarch.

Add a second coating by dipping into the marinade again, or mix the eggs in a separate bowl to dip, then add the cornstarch again. Cook until golden brown.

Freeze + Reheat

How to make sesame chicken into a freezer meal? Cook chicken and sauce as directed. Let cool and place in separate airtight freezer containers. Freeze both for up to 4 months.

When you’re ready to thaw the chicken and sauce in the refrigerator. Reheat chicken in frying pan with a little oil. Heat the sauce in a saucepan on the stove. Once they are all warm, pour the sauce over the chicken.Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve

How to reheat sesame chicken? If you’re in a hurry, you can reheat the Honey Sesame Chicken in the microwave in 30-second increments, stirring in between. For better remaining flavor, reheat the pan with a little oil.
