    Tiger Lilly's Sesame Chicken

    4 Servings
    • Peanut oil or Canola oil (for frying)
    For the Chicken
    • 1.5 to 2 lb. (about 3 or 4 large depending on size) boneless/skinless (or cut off bone) chicken breasts
    • 1/4 cup soy sauce
    • 1 TBS brown sugar
    • 2 - 3 drops sesame oil or to taste
    • 2 drops Hot chili sesame oil (or 1 shake red pepper flakes) - or to taste
    • 1 TBS sherry wine (optional)
    • Cornstarch to coat chicken
    For the Sauce
    • 1/4 cup honey
    • 1/4 cup soy sauce
    • 1/3 cup chicken broth
    • 1 - 2 TBSP sesame oil - or to taste
    • 2 - 3 tsp. Fresh ginger root (or 1 tsp. ground ginger) or to taste; grated or minced fine
    • 1 or 2 large clove garlic (about 1/2 TBS) or to taste; grated or minced fine
    • 1 TBSP brown sugar
    • 2 TBSP Apricot preserves
    • 2 drops Hot chili sesame oil (or 1 shake red pepper flakes) - or to taste
    • Slurry of 3 - 4 tsp. cornstarch dissolved in 1/4 cup water
    Note: I use a micro plane (rasp type) grater for the garlic and ginger.

    Garnish
    • 1 TBSP Sesame Seeds or to taste - toasted in a dry pan till golden
    • 2 Green Onions or to taste - white & green parts sliced
    1. Cut chicken into 1 inch cubes
    2. Combine chicken ingredients EXCEPT cornstarch and let marinate for at least 30 minutes in the refrigerator.
    3. Drain chicken (discard marinade) and toss/coat in cornstarch.
    4. Heat 2 inches oil in heavy 10 inch frying pan (I used cast iron) till a drop of water sizzles when it hits the oil (stand back and be careful when doing this).
    5. Add chicken in small batches to oil and keep moving it around until completely cooked (180°F).
    6. Remove from pan and drain on brown paper bag or paper towel.
    7. Combine all sauce ingredients EXCEPT cornstarch in a sauce pan and bring to a boil.
    8. Slowly add cornstarch slurry to the sauce and heat and stir until desired thickness.
    9. Add the chicken to the sauce and toss to coat.
    10. Place on serving dish.
    11. Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds and green onions.
    Note: You can use a deep fryer if you want. Fill, heat and cook the chicken following the users guide/directions.

    Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

    Never explain yourself. Your friends don't need it and your enemies won't believe it anyway.
