Sesame Chicken
Crispy fried chicken with sticky, sweet and sour sesame sauce. Perfect combo with rice.


  • 800 g chicken breast
  • 100 g plain white flour
  • 75 g corn starch
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 x egg white
  • null null neutral oil
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 tbsp ketchup
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp vinegar 7%
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp roasted sesame seeds
  • null null rice
  • 1 x spring onion


  1. Cut each chicken breast into large cubes of approx. 3 × 3 cm. Pour the egg white over the chicken so that everything is covered.
  2. Mix the flour, cornstarch, salt and pepper in a bowl and turn the chicken in the flour mixture. The egg white makes the mixture stick to the meat.
  3. Heat oil for deep-frying over medium-high heat. The oil in the pan should be high enough to cover the chicken. Deep fry the meat for approx. 5 min, or until the chicken turns a light golden brown color and becomes crispy. Add a little at a time, so the temperature doesn't get too low. Place the chicken on a wire rack or plate with some paper to drain.
  4. Mince the garlic and mix together all the ingredients for the sauce. Taste with the honey according to how sweet you want the sauce.
  5. Heat a frying pan to medium-high heat and add the sauce when the pan is hot. Let it simmer for approx. 1 minute. Lower the heat to low and add the chicken.
  6. Fold the chicken into the sauce, let it sit for 1 minute and take the frying pan off the heat. Sprinkle over spring onions and extra sesame seeds. Served with boiled rice.
