      This was the best sesame chicken I have ever had! It was so easy and everyone agreed it was definitely a recipe we will use often! Substituted olive oil to brown the chicken instead of butter because we were out of butter. Next time I will mix the oranges into the sauce before pouring over the chicken and leave out the water chestnuts. They were okay but didn't really add anything special to the dish. Thank you for posting this amazing recipe!

      We just loved this recipe! I used skinless, bone in thighs. I should probably have taken the thighs out when done and reduced the sauce a bit more but we were hungry and the sauce tasted great as it was. DH is often suspicious of new recipes but enjoyed this so much he wants us to have it on a regular basis. I served it with some stir fried vegetables and Sesame Noodles - it was a great pairing. Thank you for posting! Made for ZWT6 on behalf of the Looney Spoon Phoodies :)
