Sesame Chicken (Not Fried)

I’ve had Sesame Chicken on the menu for 3 weeks and FINALLY got around to making it.
Even though I spent days looking at different sesame chicken recipes, somehow my mind omitted the fact that I will have to fry the chicken.  I was half way through the prep when I realized that sesame chicken is a fried dish. I’m not a fan of frying food at home, so I thought I would try making it grilled, in a pan.

It came out really good!!

Ingredients:
Marinade:
6 tbs soy sauce
2 tbs sesame oil
1 tsp salt
4 tbs flour
4 tbs corn starch
4 tbs water
2 tbs dry white wine (or sherry)

Sauce:
3 tbs sesame oil
1 tsp fresh ground ginger
2 garlic cloves
1 tsp chilli paste
2 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup cornstarch
1/2 cup sugar
2 tbs dry white wine (or sherry)
1 tbs red wine vinegar
2 tbs soy sauce
1 tsp salt

1 tbs sesame seeds

3 chicken breasts

Directions:
1. Combine all marinade ingredients in a large bowl

2. Cut the chicken breasts into one-inch cubes and place into the marinade. Mix well and let stand for about 25 minutes.

3. In a large skillet, heat up oil on medium heat.
4. Carefully take out the chicken and place it into the skillet. You can discard the leftover marinade.

5. Saute the chicken until almost done, stirring often.

6. While the chicken is cooking….combine the ingredients for the sauce in a small sauce pot. Bring to boil stirring constantly.

7. Pour the sauce into the skillet with chicken. Mix well.
8. Add the sesame seeds and finish cooking the chicken (still on medium heat).
Serve over rice.

Enjoy!!

  1. This looks so delicious! Would the marinade work if the white wine wasn’t a dry wine?

  2. Sure it would, dry wine just wives it a little different flavor then sweeter wine.

  3. Sesame chicken is one of my absolute favorite dishes. I am going to try this for sure and I love that it’s not fried!
