Crispy Sesame Chicken

by Lisa K. on Sun, January 22, 2017

Try these crispy bite sized chicken smothered in sesame sauce with a side of fresh steamed broccoli for CNY. We think that this makes a great everyday dish too, simple to whip up and very satisfying with a bowl of white or brown rice.

  • Total
    20minutes
INGREDIENTS
    250g chicken breast, skinless & boneless
    ½ tsp salt
    Pinch of white pepper
    1 egg
    ½ cup all-purpose flour
    ½ cup flour
    1 tsp baking powder
    Oil for frying
    Sesame seeds, toasted

    Sauce:
    ½ tsp ginger, grated
    1 clove garlic, minced
    2 tbsp brown sugar
    1 tsp rice vinegar
    2 tbsp soy sauce
    ½ cup chicken stock
    2 tsp corn flour
    ½ tbsp sesame oil

METHOD

1. Mix together ingredients for sauce. Set it aside.

2. Cut chicken breast into bite-sized pieces. Season with salt & pepper and crack in egg and give it a good stir. Add in all-purpose flour and corn flour and mix thoroughly.

3. Fry the chicken until golden and crispy. This should take about 3 to 5 minutes. Fry chicken in two batches and drain them on paper towels.

4. Heat up a medium sized sauté pan and pour in the pre-mixed sauce. Gently simmer for 1 minute until it slightly thickens and add in chicken pieces.

Gently stir it to ensure every bit of chicken is coated in the sauce.

5. Dish it onto a plate and garnish it with toasted sesame seeds.

This savoury dish pairs perfectly with chilled F&N Seasons Ice Lemon Tea.
