Sesame Chicken Recipe
Today I'm sharing one of my favourite recipes for sesame chicken. It's a fantastic snack to have in the Autumn as it's warming while still being quite a light thing to eat. It can also make a great dinner when paired with rice and vegetables, so it works for every occasion! I like to whip it up on a lazy afternoon to pick at throughout the day; it's very popular in my house!
Now I must admit that this is not my recipe. I have taken it from my favourite recipe blog The Kitchen Sanctuary. I highly recommend checking out this website if you're interested in increasing your repertoire of recipes. But for now, here's my attempt!
2 eggs 3 tbsp cornflour 10 tbsp plain flour 1/2 tsp salt 1/2 tsp pepper 1/2 tsp garlic powder 2 tsp paprika 3 chicken breasts
The first thing we do is prepare our chicken. Start by cutting up the chicken breasts into small chunks. Ideally they would be small enough that they could be eaten in one bite (this is a snack item after all)!
From there, crack two eggs into a bowl and whisk them. Then put three tablespoons of cornflour into a separate bowl. Then combine all the other ingredients into another bowl and mix them together.
Take the pieces of chicken and coat them in cornflour, then the eggs, and then the flour mix before placing them on a plate; put them to the side.
Ingredients: Sauce Mix
2 cloves of garlic (crushed) 1 tbsp white wine vinegar 2 tbsp honey 2 tbsp sweet chilli sauce 3 tbsp tomato ketchup 2 tbsp brown sugar 3 tbsp soy sauce
In a jug or a bowl, combine all of the above ingredients and mix...simple! Put the jug to the side and save for later.
In a frying pan, add oil and then add the chicken pieces once the oil is hot. Fry for 5-6 minutes until cooked in the middle and golden brown.
Remove the pieces of chicken from the pan and add in the sauce mix. Cook for 1-2 minutes and then add the chicken in again and mix together.
Place your chicken in a bowl or on a plate and then sprinkle some sesame seeds over the top.
And that's it! This recipe requires a fair few ingredients, but it's incredibly simple to make and tasted delicious at the end! If you give it a go yourself, please send me a picture so I can see how it turned out.
