      Oops. I promised to review this again after trying it. It's a keeper! I get bulk chicken breasts and make freezer meals. This is in the regular rotation. I prefer it saucier so I double the sauce recipe and used about 2 tbs honey/honey sauce and 4 tbs log cabin syrup. Also using potato flour in place of the cornstarch. (I'm sensitive to corn)

      We certainly enjoyed this version of sesame chicken (one of my faves!) The coating/breading was a little different, but it worked well. I used my non-stick wok and cooked 1 'huge' breast in 2 batches, so as not to crowd the pan. The sauce was yummy and easy. I will make this again, and may add a touch of ginger next time, as a personal preference. Thanks so much for sharing, IngridH! Made for Best of 2010 tag game.

      I made this for dinner tonight for my husband and 3 year old daughter. I doubled the sauce, added a bag of asian style stir fry veggies and served it all over brown rice - success! Next time I might add a pinch of red pepper flakes, but that's just me - I like a little kick. This chicken alone would be great served in a salad or wrap. Thanks for a great recipe that we'll use over and over again.
