Forget about takeout, this finger-lickin’ crispy sesame chicken underneath a sticky and sweet honey sauce is super easy to make. Comes together in 30 minutes, served with rice and you’ll never need a takeout again!
This crispy Sesame Chicken recipe is one of our favorite take-out options to the Friday night takeaway when we are craving for General Tso’s Chicken or Orange Chicken (Panda Express).
Crispy, sweet, sticky and tangy (or zesty – if you opt for the option 2 sauce) – it has all the basics where everyone in my family goes for seconds and no leftover, not even a chunk or a drip of sauce.
It’s also one of those meals that so easy to whip up in a pan and easy to clean up. Simply cut the chicken into bite sizes to cook them fast while the finger-lickin’ sesame sauce comes together in just a matter of a minute.
I must admit it’s not the healthiest meal considering the Sesame chicken sauce includes brown sugar and honey and of course the oil for frying the chicken – but it’s better than any restaurant.
You can serve with some steamed vegetable to boost the health factor.
And since my family enjoyed this dish too much, I thought it’s about time to share this recipe.
How to Make the Sesame Chicken Sauce?
I made the sauce with 2 options: The Sweet One and the Zesty One. And if you’re like me who loves anything a bit spicy, you’ll enjoy the zesty sauce most (note: just a bit of spicy).
This sesame chicken recipe was an absolute hit, and my family loves the tangy, flavor sauce. You can’t go wrong with this warm, delicious meal in just 30 minutes.
