honey sesame chicken

After taking a cooking class at Sur la Table I have been trying to make more chinese food. We made gyoza, sweet and sour chicken, and noodles. Since I love chicken so much I decided to make another chicken dish and I came across this one. I made this for my brother and myself and he loved it. If my brother approved of this recipe, then there is no doubt you will love it. So if you are at the grocery store go buy some asian sauces and sesame seeds because believe me they will come in handy if you want to try other recipes. I still use my sauces whenever I find a new recipe, it really make the difference. 

​What you need:

  • 4 chicken breast, cubed

  • 2 tbs soy sauce

  • 2 tbs cooking wine

  • 1 tbs sesame seed oil

  • 2 tsp. sugar

  • 3 tbs cornstarch

  • 6 tbs flour

  • 1 tsp. salt

  • ½ tsp. pepper

  • vegetable oil for cooking (do not use olive oil)

Sauce ingredients

  • 2 tbs honey

  • 2 tbs oyster sauce

  • 2 tbs sweet chili sauce

  • 4 tbs ketchup

  • 4 tbs soy sauce

  • ½ cup water

  • sesame seeds, toasted


Cut your chicken breasts into bite size pieces. Put chicken, soy sauce, wine, sesame oil and sugar in a bag and marinate for 1-2 hours then drain chicken. 


Add vegetable oil to a shallow pan on medium heat. *


Mix cornstarch, flour, salt and pepper in a large ziploc bag. In 3 batches, add chicken to flour mixture, shake gently to coat, and then toss in your frying pan until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.



Mix honey, oyster sauce, chili sauce, ketchup, soy sauce and water in a medium sauce pan. Bring sauce to a boil then simmer until sauce begins to thicken. Pour sauce over chicken pieces and toss.

Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve.




* I didn't want to drown my chicken in oil so I just poured a small layer on the bottom. the chicken still came out delicious!

* I served over basmati rice. It's like a white rice but the grain is thinner
