Sesame Chicken

For the Chicken:
4 chicken breasts, cut into 1 inch cubes
1/4 cup soy sauce
1Tbsp. brown sugar
1 Tbsp. sherry wine
2 drops sesame oil
cornstarch, to coat chicken
Sesame Seeds

For the Sauce:
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/3 cup chicken broth
1-2 Tbsp. sesame oil
1 tsp. ground ginger
1/2 Tbsp. minced garlic
1/2 Tbsp. brown sugar
2 tsp. cornstarch

Your going to marinate your chicken first. Combine the ingredients listed under "chicken", except the cornstarch and sesame seeds. Marinate chicken for 30 minutes in the refrigerator.

Once marinated, drain chicken and toss in cornstarch. Let rest a few minutes so the coating will really stick to the chicken.

Heat your oil over medium heat. Once all your chicken is fried, you can keep it warm in the oven while you make the sauce. Make sure oven is on low or the "warm" setting.

Add all your sauce ingredients into a pan, except the cornstarch. Bring to a boil over medium heat.

Mix your cornstarch with about 1/4 cup of water and stir well until smooth. Drizzle cornstarch mixture into your boiling sauce and stir well.

Once thickened, add your chicken and continue heating over low-medium for a few minutes.

Sprinkle with sesame seeds, serve with rice or steamed veggies. Delicious!
