RECIPE

Well, I am not sure how much of a "recipe" I have but I will share where the inspiration started. awesome recipe blog. I actually took this recipe and kind of did my own thing. For the chicken, I used boneless, skinless breasts. I cut it up in bite sized chunks. For the batter, I used 1/2 cup of cornstarch and 3 eggs. Now I have never considered breading chicken in cornstarch, but it works. It was perfect texture and consistency. I just deep fried it and placed it to the side.

For the sauce, I really doctored it. For one, that is a lot of garlic and a good bit of ginger. I used a little of each, but honestly, I could have lived without the ginger at all. You can adapt the taste to your liking. I realized that technically it isn't "sesame" chicken according to her website, but it sure tasted like sesame chicken to me.

When all the chicken was done frying, I threw the sauce (blended in the processor), the chicken and sugar peas into the wok and just tossed it around until it got hot.

It was darn good, and it looked just like her photo. If you all try it, let me know how you like it. It was a huge hit at my house!
