Sesame Chicken

Hi Everyone, 
I wanted to share with you the Sesame Chicken that Eric and I made together awhile ago.  I received the recipe from Yummy. Healthy. Easy.
I will be honest, I don’t really know what it is suppose to taste like but this was super sweet and not at all what I was expecting.  It was still good, Eric added some red pepper flakes and he was happy!


  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into cubes
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 3 Tbsp oyster sauce
  • 3/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 3 Tbsp cornstarch
  • Broccoli florets
  • Sesame seeds


Place cornstarch in large plastic bag with chicken and toss to coat.
Pour canola oil in bottom of a large skillet.  Brown chicken in skillet.
Mix water, sugar, soy sauce, oyster sauce, garlic powder and cornstarch in a small sauce pan.  Stir over medium heat until it thickens.
Pour over browned chicken and simmer for a few minutes.
Server over white rice and sprinkle with sesame seeds and broccoli.  If you want, you can steam the broccoli with the chicken for a few minutes but we were hungry!

Note from the Chef

This was not my favorite recipe ever and I don’t think we will make it again.  When Eric has to add something to make it taste better, I take that as a hint that he doesn’t really like it.
If you really want a great Chinese recipe, check out the Sweet and Sour Chicken I made.  YUM!
What do you think of the recipe?
Happy Cooking,
