I made the sesame chicken recipe on Saturday Jan 14, 2012 and it was awesome. The only thing I believe I changed was the measurement of the sugar, read the recipe wrong and put 2-1/2 Tablespoons of white sugar, but it was really really good. The batter consistency was to die for I had to add maybe a little under 1/4 cup more water but the chicken cooked up in about 2-3 mins, I used breast meat from whole foods and it was so delicious. I had about 1-1/2 breast but it was plenty for two of us and the sauce was perfect for that amount. Thank you for a wonderful recipe and sorry I couldn't find it under the chicken to comment but to date I have made 3 of your recipes and they are to die for. (the orange chicken, (with some tweeking) the sweet and sour pork and this one. Thank you ever so much for sharing your recipe.

We love Asian inspired dishes and always easy to defrost some shrimp after a long day. Will definitely try this one out!

I loved this recipe too. I agree with Kent though, it didn't seem to make enough portions.
