Sticky Sesame Peanut Chicken


Sticky Sesame Peanut Chicken

I made this recipe on a whim tonight to treat my daughter who is studying for her first set of exams. We have a local Japanese restaurant that does a wicked Sesame Chicken and instead of studying she was obsessing about this dish. Mom to the rescue with a little help from Pinterest and the addition of two tablespoons of peanut butter and Epicure Roasted Garlic Aioli instead of plain garlic powder. The original recipe follows from Le Creme de la Crumb.



Sweet and sticky sesame chicken, ready in 30 minutes and way better than take out!

Recipe type: Main Dish / Chicken
Cuisine: Asian
Serves: 4
  • 3-4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, chopped into 1.5 inch pieces
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 6 tablespoons flour
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 3 tablespoons corn starch
  • sesame seeds
  • 3-4 cups cooked white rice
  • optional: fresh green onions, chopped
for the sauce
  • 6 tablespoons honey
  • 4 tablespoons ketchup
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon cold water + 2 tablespoons corn starch
  1. Whisk all sauce ingredients together, set aside.
  2. Place beaten egg, 3 tablespoons corn starch, and flour in three separate bowls. Dip chicken pieces in egg mixture, then flour (toss to coat), and lastly in corn starch (toss to coat). Heat oil over medium heat in a large pan or skillet. Add chicken and cook, stirring throughout to ensure even cooking, 5-10 minutes until cooked though.
  3. Add sauce to your skillet and bring to a boil. Whisk cold water and 2 tablespoons corn starch together in a small bowl until corn starch is dissolved. Add corn starch mixture to skillet. Stir until sauce thickens. Serve over rice and top with sesame seeds and green onions. Enjoy!
*The sauce recipe will make enough to coat the chicken but, if you like your dishes really saucy, double the sauce recipe!
