So for the second part to my Asian food crave day… Spicy Sesame chicken served alongside steamed sugar snap peas!!
This was one of the easiest recipes to prepare and amazingly enough spot-on to the flavor of your favorite take-out!! Crispy, crunchy, sweet, spicy, savory, tangy… I can go on and on… I did have to put my own spin on it by adding the spicy factor!
The chicken… some beautiful and succulent breasts that were cubed up and tossed into a marinade of sesame oil, soy sauce, flour, baking powder and cornstarch.
The sauce… soy sauce, sesame oil, scallions, an uber-spicy red chili, sugar, ginger, garlic, sherry vinegar, sambal oelek [chili sauce] and chicken stock!
After frying the chicken, a quick toss into the sauce, a healthy spill of sesame seeds and I was ready to plate this bad-ass!
One word… INCREDIBLE!
at a low simmer…
