Sesame Chicken

Who can resist all the food offered at the Chinese joint??? I am a die hard fan of their Sesame Chicken, Orange Chicken and Teriyaki Chicken I can stop here though. Winter now and so much food yes the same old Calorie count comes to mind but couldnt stop there I decided to make Sesame Chicken, it was close to what I wanted... I did try something like this with the Shrimps and Chicken earlier check them out, but this is with a lil variation.



Ingredients:

For the Chicken:

Chicken - 1 lb
Flour - 1 cup
Baking Pwd - 1/4 tsp
Garlic Salt - 1 tsp
Chilli Pwd - 1 1/2 tsp
Soy Sauce - 1 tbsp
Buttermilk - 2 cups

For the Sauce:

Soy Sauce - 1/2 cup
Orange Juice - 1/4 cup
Sugar - 1/4 cup
Garlic Pods - 3
Red Chilli Flakes - 1 1/2 tbsps
Shallots - few stalks
Salt to taste

For Garnishing:

Sesame Seeds
Cilantro few Stalks



Method:

1. Clean and cut Chicken into desired shape and marinate in Buttermilk for 1-2 hrs.
2. Remove the Chicken and toss in the Flour (Flour, Garlic Salt, Baking Pwd, Chilli Pwd) and Soy Sauce and let it rest for 10-15 mins.
3. Mix all the ingredients for the Sauce and cook over low or medium heat for 10-15 mins.



4. Deep fry the Chicken (in batches) in Oil, dry them on kitchen towel and quickly dip in the Sauce and remove immediately.
5. Garnish with Sesame Seeds and Cilantro .

Serve with: Rice or Noodles



I can see New Year approaching yup the realization is a lil early though I got a mail each asking me to subscribe for recipe calendars, one was Betty Crocker and the other one Pillsbury and surprisingly they were absolutely free. Check out the links for the calendars.
