"I've been looking for a good sesame chicken recipe. I adapted a few, and this tastes something like what I think it should. I used Fish and Things Teriyaki Marinade (on this site). It tastes a lot like Mr. Yoshida's teriyaki. If you prefer, you can substitute pancake syrup for honey, and fresh ginger for five-spice powder."

  1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine flour, 1/4 cup sesame seeds, black pepper, five-spice powder, and red pepper flakes. Place a few pieces of chicken at a time into the bag, and shake to coat. Remove to a platter.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Place chicken into skillet, and brown on both sides, about 5 minutes. Remove chicken, and set aside. Stir onion wedges and bell pepper slices into skillet; cook until slightly browned, about 2 minutes. Remove, and set aside.
  3. Return chicken to skillet, and reduce heat to low. Mix in teriyaki marinade, 1/4 cup sesame seeds, and honey; stir until sauce thickens. Return onion and bell pepper to the skillet. Warm through, and serve.

As others have suggested, you’ll probably end up tripling the sauce amount; the fried chicken chunks generally absorb the relatively small amount of sauce mixture that is called-for very quickl...

This can be very tasty, if you make a few changes. I halved the amount of flour, and I substituted the five-spice powder in favor of a packet of Honey Sesame seasoning mix that I found in the o...

I used one full red pepper in place of the green pepper and based on the previous reviews, I quadrupled the "sauce". To make quick work of the sauce and to cut down on overmixing (and by overmix...

This was excellent! I took others' advise and tripled the sauce, it cookes down quickly so I'm glad I did this. I paired this with the Chicken Lo Mein submitted by Michelle on this site and su...

Per the advice of others, I tripled the sauce. It seemed necessary. I also didn't use as many sesame seeds as it called for (I didn't want them to overpower the flavor). I would also recommen...

YUM!!! Very good, and thankfully not as sticky or sweet as my favorite Chinese restaurant. I skipped the five-spice (I HATE black licorice, and that's what the flavor primarily is -- comes fro...

This came out so good! I had to improvise a little, because I didn't have any teriyaki sauce. After finding out that teriyaki sauce is made of sweet soy sauce and wine, I made my own version of ...

Really enjoyed this recipe.. used fresh grated ginger instead of 5-spice powder. Added a bit of sesame oil to the pan before frying chicken. Used Fish & Things Terryaki Marinade from this site ...
