Sesame Chicken

Saturday, July 18, 2009




 Recently, i saw on TV in a travel programme, a Chinese chef cooking a chicken dish in a way that is very interesting. Nothing is being said about the ingredients except the use of sugar and sesame seeds, the TV host who tried it said it was super delicious.

This made me want to try cooking it too. Well, not knowing the recipe, i try something that looked simple and logical to me. 

Ta-ta, a new recipe is born. Sis said that it was yummy and i couldn’t stop smiling the whole night. Will definately be cooking this again!

    Sounds good! I will definitely give it a try one of these days. I always love the mix of sweet and salty recipes.
