The measurements for sugar and sesame oil are the way I found the recipe--they can be adjusted according to your taste. Yummy served with Fried Rice.

Oh my!!!! This is delicious!!! We doubled the recipe, and it came out terrific! I didn't double the chili paste though because of the two picky eaters in the house! I will make this before ordering sesame chicken from our local chinese place!! Thanks for posting a great recipe!
