    bratty's Note:

    People love this sesame chicken. It tastes as close to the restaurant version as I think you can get. It is from I found this a couple of years ago on that site, and BF requests it a tleast 2-3 times a month. it really is great, and although there are a lot of ingredients, it's basically simple to prepare.

      Thanks for this recipe, we totally LOVED it. It was a little more work than I expected, but so worth it. I was a bit concerned about using that marinade coating as a batter for deep frying, but it came out fine, you get to taste chicken instead of tons of flour. I couldn't find the brown sugar, so I substitued w/a little white sugar and some honey. Once the chicken was fried, I soaked up all the extra grease w/paper towels and mixed it all in the pot w/the sauce and let it soak in for 20 minutes on low heat. Served with white rice and mixed chinese veggies.

      Very tasty - I set up the chicken to marinate the night before, and also added about 1 tbs of sesame oil to the sauce. Letting the oil get very hot before adding each batch of chicken cubes helps them cook faster, which really cuts down on the greasy taste you might otherwise taste. Very easy to make, too.
