Easy to make, tastes like a special dinner you fussed over. I like to serve over Jasmine rice. I do use 2 large chicken breasts when there is just the two of us, that gives us more sauce.

I agree that this recipe is a good starting formula that could use some extra ingredients. I added liquid honey to the sauce and it was excellent!

Sesame chicken is one of my favorite chinese dishes, one that I always order when we get takeout. This recipe is just as good as a restaurant's! I did add some garlic (about one clove per breast of chicken) and hot pepper flakes and doubled the sauce so we'd have enough to spoon over rice. I also cooked the sauce a little longer to make it more syrup-y. My whole family loved this, and it was so easy to make.
