This recipe was another one that I found in the newspaper supplement last week. It was called Easy Sesame Chicken. Paula cooked it for us on Tuesday when I got home late due to a meeting at school. It was very delicious and all of us enjoyed it a lot!

First, prepare the sauce as follows… In a small bowl, stir together 2 tablespoons soy sauce, 1 tablespoon water, 1 1/2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil, 2 1/4 teaspoons of brown sugar, 2 1/4 teaspoons rice vinegar, 1 piece of fresh grated ginger, 1 clove minced garlic, 2 tablespoons sesame seeds and 1 tablespoon corn starch.

Next, prepare the chicken. Whisk together 1 egg, 2 tablespoons corn starch, salt and pepper to taste. Toss 1 pound of chicken pieces (Note: We bought chicken tenders at the grocery store so that we would not have to cut them up.) with this egg mixture. Heat 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil in a large skillet or wok. Add the chicken and cook, stirring, until the chicken is golden brown. This should take about 7-10 minutes.

Pour the sauce over the chicken. Toss to coat. The sauce will start to thicken as soon as it hits the hot skillet. Remove from the heat when this begins to happen.

Serve over rice and sprinkle with some green onions if they are available.
