Yalla, Let’s Eat Seasame Chicken!










Let’s cut to it. We need take-out. If you want restaurant quality food without going to the restaurant THIS IS YOUR RECIPE! I made this for my brother who loves sesame chicken and he has been BEGGING me to make it again. I thought why not share this with my instafam?! The chicken is extremely crunchy and laced with a delicious sauce that we thicken up with a cornstarch slurry. I’ll stop talking now… enjoy and send me pics of the product!!

Servings:6-7 people

Directions:

1. Mix all ingredients for the marinade and add your chicken. You can wait 30 min or start right away.
