A different take on the traditional way of making sesame chicken. Normally made unbreaded this one has a bread crumb coat that makes it crusty and delicious.
Ingredients :
1 chicken breast , 2 tbspn bread crumb , 2 cloves of garlic ,
1/4th tspn dry red chilly flakes , 3 tbspn dark soy sauce ,
1 tspn vinegar , 1 tspn grated ginger , Salt to taste ,
1/4th tspn toasted sesame seeds , 2 stems of spring onions chopped,
1 green chilly finely chopped. 1 tbspn corn starch.
Procedure :
Cut chicken into 1 inch cubes . Add Salt to taste , 1 tbspn soy sauce , dry red chilly flakes , mix well , and let marinate for 15-20 minutes. Heat a tbspn full of oil in a nonstick pan Coat the chicken with bread crumb and lay the chicken flat till you see the bottom browning. Cook for about 7-8 minutes turning the chicken from time to time for even cooking and browning. Once cooked set aside on a paper towel to get rid of excess oil.
Heat oil in a wok . Add chopped garlic and the white end of the spring onion finely chopped . Saute for a couple minutes . Add the corn starch and stir well. Add soy sauce , vinegar , 1/4th cup water or chicken stock and stir well. Add the grated ginger , green chillies , salt to taste and stir well. Let it come to a boil till the corn starch turns the sauce translucent. Once the sauce is cooked Add the chicken pieces and mix well. Place it in a serving bowl and garnish with roasted sesame and the green of the spring onion.
