Simple Sesame Chicken

Pssst.  Would you like in on a little secret?  You don’t have to order carry out in order to enjoy great Asian food at home.  You – yes, you! – can make delicious Sesame Chicken in your very own kitchen.  The secret is the sauce.

How To Make Sesame Chicken

To make this dish, you need the following ingredients:

  • 1 bottle P.F. Chang’s® Sesame sauce
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1″ cubes
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cups of milk
  • Oil, for frying

Start by making chicken nuggets using flour, a little bit of salt & pepper, and milk.  Fry them until they are cooked (about 4 minutes – they will look golden brown and should float).  Once they have finished cooking, remove them from the oil and let them drain on a paper towel.

Next, place all of the cooked nuggets in a glass baking dish (I used a 9×9 pan, but an 8×8 would work well, too).  Pour a bottle of P.F. Chang’s® Sesame sauce over the nuggets, stir, and bake.

Once they have finished baking, stir that saucy goodness one more time and then you are ready to plate.  To round out this meal, serve it with some white rice and some mixed Asian vegetables.

That's what I was thinking. I haven't tried this recipe yet, but I love the sauce. It's great on chicken burgers and I use it as salad dressing on Kale mix along with some cranberry, cherry and pecan salad toppings. One of my favorite healthy meals.

This sauce tasted more like orange chicken sauce to me. Not a bad flavor, but not what i wanted.

We loved PF Changs when we visited the US. I hope we can get these sauces in the UK very soon!
