Spray 5 quart saucepot or Dutch oven with nonstick cooking spray and set over medium heat; add chicken parts and cook, turning when necessary, until chicken is browned on all sides, 4-6 minutes.

In 2 quart measure or small mixing bowl combine 1/2 cup water with the juice, soy sauce, scallion, ketchup, sugar, garlic and red pepper, mixing well; pour into pot and cook over medium heat for 1-2 minutes, stirring constantly to scrape up any browned particles from bottom of pan.

Pour sauce evenly over chicken and sprinkle with toasted sesame seed.
