Sesame Chicken Recipe – crispy sesame seed battered chicken nuggets that are great with or without sauce.
My mother has made Sesame Chicken for as long as I can remember. I think she came across this recipe in the 1970’s and for our family is has definitely been a keeper.
The accompanying sauce is a unique blend of sour from horseradish sauce and sweet from plum jelly. It sometimes helps to place those ingredients in a microwave container and “nuke” for 20-30 seconds to get the jelly to liquify a bit before mixing.
My mom would typically serve this dish with a vegetable on the side and rice that had been cooked with a packet of onion soup mix.
