Sesame Chicken

Here is my cheater version of sesame chicken. I use popcorn chicken  from the frozen section of the store. This is to simplify thing.

I like to buy my popcorn chicken from Costco. However, any popcorn chicken works. The kind I get from Costco doesn’t have direction on the package for deep frying, but I like to do it that way anyway. The product is already fully cooked, so you’re basically heating it up. On the other hand, I have baked it to and that works just fine too.

The sauce for this is a recipe from Bobby at Blog Chef, my favorite site for oriental recipes. This is a quick and simple way to have sesame chicken at home. Just serve it over cooked rice and you are set.
