This is another great recipe for the family from Mommy's Kitchen. My husband loved how this turned out and it is pretty close to the sesame chicken you would get at a Chinese restaurant. My only change was using chicken strips and cutting them into pieces after being cooked because I did not have any popcorn chicken. For this reason, my photo doesn't look nearly as nice as Tina's but it sure tasted good! I also doubled the sauce as Tina did, but I think next time I will leave it how it is stated in the recipe. Enjoy the recipe!
Sesame Chicken - Copy Cat Recipe
1 1/2 to 2 pounds of frozen popcorn chicken
1/4 cup + 2 tbsp honey
1/4 cup sugar
Salt (to taste)
1/4 cup ketchup
1 tablespoon white distilled vinegar
a sprinkle of ground black pepper
diced green onion, optional
sesame seeds, optional
Deep fry your popcorn chicken and drain on a plate lined with a paper towel. In a wok or sauce pan, combine the remaining ingredients and warm over medium heat. Bring to a boil while stirring and simmer until sauce slightly thickens. In the wok or in a serving dish coat chicken with the sauce. Serve over cooked rice and garnish with green onions and sesame seeds.
*For some people the sauce might not be enough so you can easily double the recipe. That is what I usually do.
