    xpnsve's Note:

    The restaurant version of this dish is loaded with fat, thanks to deep frying. WW has coated the chicken with flour and then pan-seared it to lighten it up. 4 points per serving.

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Place a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add sesame seeds and cook until lightly toasted, shaking pan frequently, about 2 to 3 minutes; transfer seeds to a shallow dish and set aside.
    2. 2
      Whisk water, soy sauce, maple syrup, sherry, ginger and five-spice powder together in a small bowl; set aside.
    3. 3
      Combine flour, salt and pepper together in a shallow dish; add chicken and turn to coat. Shake chicken pieces to remove excess flour.
    4. 4
      Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and sauté until browned on all sides, about 5 minutes. Add soy sauce mixture to chicken and cook until sauce thickens and is almost evaporated, about 2 to 3 minutes more.
    5. 5
      Dip chicken pieces in toasted sesame seeds and serve, drizzled with any additional soy sauce mixture. Yields about 4 strips per serving.

      I'm not sure if it was the 5 spice I bought, but my husband came downstairs thinking I was backing some wonderful CINNAMON treat. That's what this sesame chicken smelled and tasted like. Everything else smelled and looked great, but adding that 5 spice totally ruined mine. I should have left it out and just used the sauce without it. SO, smell your spice first, if it smells like something you bake with, you need a different brand. Oh and I have used in the past, I know it gives a nice undertone of seasoning, just not this one I bought. Just an FYI, be careful!

      I really liked the way the chicken came out. It was tender and flavorful. I did think the ginger was a tad bit overpowering, but it could be because I had to omit the five spice powder. Next time I make it, I will double the sauce and lessen the ginger just a tad. My DS LOVED it and DH did not even know he was eating diet food! THANKS!
