Ingredients:

3 whole boneless chicken breasts
---Marinade
2 tablespoons light soy sauce
1 tablespoon cooking wine or dry sherry
4 drops sesame oil
2 tablespoons flour
2 tablespoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons water
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
---Sauce for Sesame Chicken
1/2 cup water
1 cup chicken broth
3/4 cup vinegar (for a sweeter sauce reduce the amount of vinegar)
1/4 cup cornstarch
1 cup sugar
2 tablespoons dark soy sauce
2 tablespoons sesame oil
1 teaspoon chili paste, or more if desired
1 clove garlic (minced)
2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds
4 cups peanut oil for deep-frying
 

Preparation / Directions:

Cut the chicken into 1-inch cubes. Mix the marinade ingredients and marinate the chicken for 20 minutes. To prepare the sauce: mix together all of the sauce ingredients. Pour them into a small pot and bring to a boil, stirring continuously. Turn the heat down to low and keep warm while you are deep-frying the chicken. To deep-fry the chicken: add the marinated chicken pieces a few at a time, and deep-fry until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Repeat with the remainder of the chicken. Just before you are finished deep-frying, bring the sauce back up to a boil. Place the chicken on a large platter and pour the sauce over. Sprinkle with sesame seeds. Serve the Sesame Chicken with rice.
