Sesame Chicken

Original recipe from Coleen's Recipes

2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon cooking wine
3 drops sesame oil
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
2 tablespoons flour
2 tablespoons corn starch
2 tablespoons water
¼ teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon onion powder

Mix the above ingredients thoroughly, then add 1½ pounds of chicken breast cut into 1" cubes. Stir to coat and chill for 30 minutes before frying.

(this cooked sauce is poured over the cooked chicken)

½ cup water
1 cup chicken broth
2 tablespoons white vinegar
3/4 cup granulated sugar
¼ cup corn starch
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon sesame oil
½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 clove garlic minced
Bring to a boil (it gets very thick). Keep warm on low while you fry the chicken
Deep fry the chicken cubes, a few at a time, until they are done and batter is golden. Keep warm in oven while you fry the rest. Just before serving, add some of the sauce to the chicken and gently stir (you might not need all of the sauce) .
Serve over hot rice.

This was the most amazing dish!** 5 stars from me! One of my favorite Oriental Restaurants is in North Pole, Ak called Pagoda's. Although I am thousands of miles away, this definitely satisfied my craving until I can make it back. YUM!!
