  1. Combine the 2 tablespoons soy sauce, the dry sherry, dash of sesame oil, flour, 2 tablespoons cornstarch, 2 tablespoons water, baking powder, baking soda, and canola oil in a large bowl. Mix well; stir in the chicken. Cover and refrigerate for 20 minutes.
  2. Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  3. Combine the 1/2 cup water, chicken broth, vinegar, 1/4 cup cornstarch, sugar, 2 tablespoons soy sauce, 2 tablespoons sesame oil, red chili paste, and garlic in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Turn heat to low and keep warm, stirring occasionally.
  4. Fry the marinated chicken in batches until cooked through and golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Drain on paper towels.
  5. Transfer the chicken to a large platter, top with sauce, and sprinkle with sesame seeds.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes
  • Tamari can be used in place of soy sauce, if you desire.
  • For a sweeter sauce, just use 2 tablespoons of vinegar. If you like it tangy, use up to 3/4 cup!

I'm a vegetarian so I only made the sauce from the second part of the recipe, and it was the best sesame sauce I've ever made -- better than my favorite restaurant's! I made a couple of changes:...

This looks like a variation (or the other is a variation of this LOL) of the Perfect Sesame Chicken also posted here on Allrecipes. ANd it's GREAT! if you want a really wonderful lower fat/carb...

I have made this several times and am just getting to rating it. DELISH! Better then any chinese food take out.Didn't change a thing in the recipe
