Sesame Chicken

Hi Everyone, 

I wanted to share with you the Sesame Chicken that Eric and I made together awhile ago.  I received the recipe from Yummy. Healthy. Easy.

I will be honest, I don't really know what it is suppose to taste like but this was super sweet and not at all what I was expecting.  It was still good, Eric added some red pepper flakes and he was happy!


  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into cubes
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 3 Tbsp oyster sauce
  • 3/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 3 Tbsp cornstarch
  • Broccoli florets
  • Sesame seeds


Place cornstarch in large plastic bag with chicken and toss to coat.

Pour canola oil in bottom of a large skillet.  Brown chicken in skillet.

Mix water, sugar, soy sauce, oyster sauce, garlic powder and cornstarch in a small sauce pan.  Stir over medium heat until it thickens.

Pour over browned chicken and simmer for a few minutes.

Server over white rice and sprinkle with sesame seeds and broccoli.  If you want, you can steam the broccoli with the chicken for a few minutes but we were hungry!

Note from the Chef

This was not my favorite recipe ever and I don't think we will make it again.  When Eric has to add something to make it taste better, I take that as a hint that he doesn't really like it.

If you really want a great Chinese recipe, check out the Sweet and Sour Chicken I made.  YUM!

What do you think of the recipe?

Happy Cooking,

  1. Hi;
    Great recipe. I am returning the follow via Bloglovin. Great blog and congratulations on the nomination for the Liebster award.

  2. At least you tried something new, right? Sesame chicken isn't suppose to be super sweet.


    (New follower & I found you at Southern Lovely)

    1. Yes at least we tried something! It wasn't horrible though, just not what we were expecting. I will follow you back :)

  3. Thank you for linking you entry in my What Are You Doing? Blog Hop! http://contentemeant.blogspot.com/2013/05/what-are-you-doing-blog-hop-2.html
    Funny that some things don't turn out the way you think they should. But it gives you the chance to try something else to make it better, right? The recipe might have been better with some added spice.

  4. Alyssa it sounds and looks yummy. Sesame chicken is a sweet dish,at least when I have gotten it. I would just reduce that sugar and I bet you would love it! Thanks for sharing your recipe and have a lovely weekend.

  5. You are invited to share this with Show Your Stuff:
