Crispy Sesame Chicken


Crispy Sesame Chicken was always one of my favorite takeout dishes – until I discovered how easy it is to make at home! Don’t be put off by the list of ingredients – most of the things you need are pantry essentials and I’m sure you’ll already have some of them in your kitchen.

The sauce is the star of this dish, a perfect balance of sweet and salty, with a little spicy kick. It makes a great accompaniment to the crispy-on-the-outside, juicy-on-the-inside chicken and everyone is sure to love it!

So, how to cook Crispy Sesame Chicken?

Steps to make Crispy Sesame Chicken


Heat the oil


In a large frying pan, or wok if you have one, heat the oil until sizzling hot.


Prepare the chicken coating


Set out three shallow bowls. Place the cornstarch in one and the beaten egg in another. In the third bowl, combine the paprika, garlic salt, flour and seasoning.


Coat the chicken


Taking each piece of chicken, first coat it in the cornstarch, then dip it in the egg and finally coat it in the flour mixture. Make sure each chunk is fully covered.


Cook the chicken


Add the chicken to the hot pan (watch out as the oil will spit!). Cook over a high heat for 6-7 minutes until browned, tossing every couple of minutes to prevent it from burning. Remove from the pan and place on paper towels to catch the excess oil.


Make the sauce


In the same pan, combine all of the ingredients for the sauce and cook over a high heat, stirring continuously. After 2-3 minutes, the sauce should thicken and reduce.


Combine the chicken and the sauce


Put the chicken back into the pan and stir it into the sauce, cooking together for a further 1-2 minutes.


Serving Crispy Sesame Chicken

Scatter the chicken with sesame seeds and chopped scallions and serve with boiled rice.

Crispy Sesame Chicken goes beautifully with my fragrant Asian Coconut Rice. Once you’ve cooked this once, you’ll never go back to the takeout version! Try it out and let me know if you agree!
