Simply Sumptuous Sesame Chicken

When I got married, two and half years ago, I had absolutely zero cooking experience. My husband, though, is a master dessert chef, so I kind of felt a bit pressured to match up in the cooking department. Naturally, I turned to my very skilled mom for recipes and direction (thanks, Ma!). This was one of the simple but delicious recipes she provided.  I make it most Friday nights; the sauce keeps the chicken moist on the hot plate. Even Mr. Chef was impressed!

Ingredients (8)

Main ingredients

Start Cooking

Prepare the Chicken

  1. Dip chicken nuggets in beaten egg, then coat in flour mixture.

  2. Heat oil in a frying pan and fry the nuggets for two minutes on each side. (To cut time and calories, you can skip the frying. Just leave out the beaten egg, coat the chicken in flour, and place directly in pan to bake with the sauce.)

  3. Place chicken in a pan sprayed with cooking spray.

  4. Combine ketchup, brown sugar, and water and pour over chicken.

  5. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 degrees Celsius) for 10–15 minutes (a bit longer if it wasn’t fried first).

    Perfect, the dipping and frying can be a bit fiddly but do NOT skip this step, it's so worth it! The sauce was so simple to put together (I added the sesame seeds to the sauce) and when I tasted that first bite of chicken my eyes popped, it was that good! :)

    Sesame Chicken

    Sounds good, but where's the sesame in the list of ingredients and at what point do you add it to the dish? Before of after baking?

    Simply Sumptuous Sesame Chicken

    Sounds yummy & easy! I’m also wondering about the sesame seeds. It’s not mentioned in any part of the recipe. How much? When to add or mix it in?

    How to Freeze?

    If I want to make it in advance, how would you recommend freezing? And then how should I warm it up? Thanks!

    You can either bread them and freeze them (not fried) and just fry them right before you will eat them or you can fry them and then freeze them. However, then you'd have to bake them to make sure they get crispy and crunchy again. I would add the sauce later.

    I really like how simple the ingredients in this recipe are. Delicious! Comes out great (with frying, I never tried without frying).
