Chinese Style Sesame Sauce

Chinese Style Sesame Sauce


"This is the SAUCE for Chinese restaurant style sesame chicken and broccoli. This sauce can be poured over fried chicken, or used as a dipping sauce for fried chicken. I emphasize not using too much vinegar because it turns into a sweet-n-sour type sauce. But you do need a 'touch' of vinegar."

Just awesome! I did make a few changes (didn't have some things in the house): used all water instead of chicken broth and water, used 1/3 cup toasted sesame seeds instead of the sesame oil, a...
