What's Chanukah without the fried food? Rivky Kleiman's classic Sesame Chicken, from her latest cookbook Simply, is the perfect crowdpleaser for a holiday meal or party.

Watch as Rivky and Naomi share their best frying tips on Sunny Side Up.

Ingredients (20)

Chicken

Batter

Sesame Sauce

Start Cooking

Prepare the Sesame Chicken

  1. In a large resealable bag, combine non-dairy milk, garlic, and red pepper flakes. Add chicken tenders. Coat chicken tenders; marinate and soften for 15 to 20 minutes.

  2. In a large bowl, combine and whisk together batter ingredients. Add marinated chicken tenders. Discard any remaining marinade. Mix to completely coat.

  3. Heat three inches oil in a two- to three-quart saucepan over medium heat. Add a few pieces of chicken at a time, taking care not to crowd the pan. Fry for two minutes, until lightly golden. Turn chicken, fry until lightly golden. Transfer fried chicken to a paper towel-lined cooling rack or pan. Repeat the process until all chicken is fried.

Prepare the Sesame Sauce

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together sauce ingredients until smooth. Set aside.

To Finish

  1. Heat sesame oil in a large skillet or wok over medium heat. Add sesame sauce. Bring to a boil; cook until thickened, whisking occasionally. Reduce heat to medium-low. Add fried chicken; toss to coat with sauce. Sprinkle with additional sesame seeds and chopped chives.

    when it comes to fried foods, it is always best fresh out of the oil. You definitely can rewarm it, but it won't be exactly the same. Preheat your oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit and reheat "low and slow" until they're fully reheated

    I have found that I usually need to adjust the vinegar in my sesame chicken recipes to much less. Take it as a learning experience and start with a tablespoon next time.
