Sesame Chicken

by Laura

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.

I was made this sesame chicken for dinner tonight, and it was delicious! I was a little nervous it wouldn't have enough depth of flavor, but it turned out scrumptious. even my hubby was loved eating this…as long as he can use his fingers. thank you for shearing your post.

Thanks
