Sesame what?

Tonight I decided to use a bottle of garlic teriyaki sauce that I had bought over a month ago. I used it to form a sauce for sesame chicken.

This is the marinade that I used. I purchased it from the local cooking store called "
Cooking with Class"

The sesame chicken turned out awesome and my husband and I both enjoyed it very much. Thank you Katy (TexasSmith) for sharing the recipe with me.

Sesame Chicken

1 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 c. toasted sesame seeds, divided
1 tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. Chinese five-spice powder
1.5 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 package chicken breast strips, cut into chunks
8 tbsp. teriyaki sauce
6 tbsp. honey
oil for frying

In a large ziplock bag, combine flour, 1/4 c. sesame seeds, black pepper, red pepper and Chinese spice. Place chicken in bag and shake to coat.

Heat oil in large skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Place chicken into skillet and brown on both sides, about 5 minutes per side.

Remove chicken from skillet and empty excess oil from pan. Reduce heat to low and return chicken to skillet. Mix in teriyaki sauce, honey and 1/4 c. sesame seeds, and stir until sauce thickens.Serve over brown rice.

You could also add sugar snap peas, onions, bell peppers or any other veggies you like.
