Sesame Chicken

Here is my cheater version of Sesame Chicken. I use popcorn chicken to simplify thing. I like to buy my popcorn chicken from Costco. It doesn’t have direction on the package for deep frying, but I do it that way anyway. The product is already fully cooked, so your basically heating it up. The sauce for this is a recipe from Bobby at Blog Chef, my favorite site for oriental recipes. This is a quick and simple way to have sesame chicken at home.

Sesame Chicken
1 1/2 to 2 pounds of frozen popcorn chicken
6 tablespoons honey
4 tablespoons sugar
Salt (to taste)
4 tablespoons ketchup
2 tablespoon white distilled vinegar
a sprinkle of ground black pepper
diced green onion, optional
sesame seeds, optional
Deep fry your popcorn chicken and drain on a plate lined with a paper towel. In a wok or sauce pan, combine the remaining ingredients and warm over medium heat. Bring to a boil while stirring and simmer until sauce slightly thickens. In the wok or in a serving dish coat chicken with the sauce. Serve over cooked rice and garnish with diced green and sesame seeds.

  • Great recipe! Thanks so much! And your food photography is superb.

  • I’m back to say that I made this recipe tonight. The chicken turned out great in this recipe, although I baked mine in the oven. I didn’t want to do the whole oil/fry thing. The sauce tasted good but was too sweet for us. I may have to look for a different sauce with less sugar in it. Overall this recipe was fast to prepare, and tasted good. Thanks for the suggestion to use the popcorn chicken! So much EASIER!

  • Made this last night with the cheesy rolls both were so good. I love all of your recipes because they are what us moms with picky eaters like to make. Thanks for sharing.

  • I just bought some of that popcorn chicken the other day at Costco! I wasn’t sure what I was going to to do with it….now I do!! THANKS!

  • That looks so good. I love the copy cat recipes as well.

  • Oh man, I wish I had a Costco card to I could buy that chicken. Maybe they have it at Sam’s? This looks fabulous!

  • Oh you take the prettiest pictures!

  • That looks wonderful! I love cheater recipes.
