Ingredients

3 whole boneless chicken breasts

Marinade
2 tablespoons light soy sauce
1 tablespoon cooking wine or dry sherry
a few drops of sesame oil
2 tablespoons flour
2 tablespoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons water
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vegetable oil

Sauce for Sesame Chicken
1/2 cup water
1 cup chicken broth
1/8 cup vinegar
1/4 cup cornstarch
1 cup sugar
2 TB dark soy sauce
2 TB sesame oil
1 tsp chili paste, or more if desired
1 clove garlic (minced)

2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds

3 1/2 - 4 cups peanut oil for deep-frying


Cut the chicken into 1-inch cubes.


Mix the marinade ingredients and marinate the chicken for 20 minutes.


To prepare the sauce: mix together all of the sauce ingredients.


Pour them into a small pot and bring to a boil, stirring continuously.


Turn the heat down to low and keep warm while you are deep-frying the chicken.


To deep-fry the chicken: add the marinated chicken pieces a few at a time, and deep-fry until golden brown.


Drain on paper towels. Repeat with the remainder of the chicken.


Just before you are finished deep-frying, bring the sauce back up to a boil.


Place the chicken on a large platter and pour the sauce over.


Sprinkle with sesame seeds.


Serve the Sesame Chicken with fried rice.
