Sesame Chicken

READY IN: 20mins
Top Review by Graybert

This dish was very tasty. I like that there is not very much oil used for frying - a good healthy choice! I marinaded my chicken for about one hour - so I think that it got a really good flavour into it - I also cut back the ginger by half - personal preference. Good recipe - will definately try again!! -Christina
