I got this recipe from a friend, it was AWESOME! And I can't wait to make it again!

***Tips: I marinated my chicken for about 4 hours in some teriyaki this really added to the flavor, I also made the Chinese spice using the recipe below. I used all that this recipe made, it was a lot more then a tsp. but it was really good!

Sesame chicken is my favorite Asian dish will give it a try next time it is Asian night at my house.
