    anme's Note:

    A few months ago I made this great sesame chicken that my mother and I loved.... problem was it was one of those dinners where I added a little of this... a little of that.... and could not for the life of me remember what on earth I put in it!! So after months of tinkering in the kitchen I FINALLY came up with the recipe last night, and wrote down all the ingredients!! Enjoy!

      Restaurant Quality. I doubled the sauce and recommend doing this. I used 1 1/2 teaspoons of ginger instead of the 2 teaspoons indicated after double the ingredients. I will add 2 teaspoons next time. I used 2 tablespoons of sesame oil and increased the garlic. If you do not marinate your chicken you will lose some of the flavor but it will still be a good dish. My DH said to make this again so that means MAKE IT:)

      Great dish. I made a minor adjustment. We don't like the five spice powder so we add powdered ginger and cinnamon to the sauce (2 of the 5). I'm really not sure frying the chicken is needed. I think it might be just as good with uncoated chicken. Great stuff, thanks.

      Good, flavorful sauce and the chicken turned out very moist. Next time I'd leave out the 5 Spice powder as it was a little overwhelming.
