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.

Ingredients

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 one inch pieces
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ teaspoons salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cups of milk
  • Vegetable oil or peanut oil

How To Make Sesame Chicken

Start by making chicken nuggets. 

Preheat oven to 400 degrees and also heat oil to 350 degrees in a large skillet over medium-high heat.

Place flour, salt, and pepper in a large zip-top bag and shake to mix. Alternatively, you can place the flour and seasoning in a large mixing bowl. Pour milk into a separate bowl.

Add pieces of chicken in batches to the flour mixture to coat. Remove the chicken and shake off the excess flour. Dip the chicken into the milk and return it back to the flour mixture. Remove chicken again and shake off excess.

Fry the chicken in the heated oil for 4-6 minutes or until done. Chicken should be light brown and float.

Drain the chicken 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 rice and mixed Asian vegetables.

See how easy that was? Now if Sesame is not your favorite flavor, make the nuggets and substitute one of the other P.F. Chang’s® sauces (Teriyaki or Kung Pao).

    Nice article, well written, with beautiful pictures. Great job on your website. I haven’t made this one yet, but I just bought almost every bottle of different sauces available. This is my type of cooking. I definitely went way overboard buying different sauces. Probably around 15 different sauces from several companies. PF Chang’s sauces are great though.

    I ate it all. But, it didn’t have a ‘sesame’ flavor; it was more like Chinese orange sauce. I will however also try it on grilled chicken. It is an easy recipe and worth the effort. Thank you.

    1. 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.
