Sesame Orange Chicken

Ingredients

  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts (cut into 1 inch cubes)
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 egg (beaten)
  • 1/2 cup water (or as much as needed to make batter smooth)
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • salt (to taste)
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

Sauce

  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • the juice of 1/2 orange
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest
  • sprinkle of garlic powder
  • sesame seeds

Directions

  •  Heat oil in a deep fryer to 325 degrees. In large bowl combine all of the batter ingredients and mix thoroughly. The batter should be thick enough to coat the chicken but thin enough to flow around the pieces. Set aside.
  •  Dip chicken pieces  into the batter to coat evenly (one by one). Deep fry the chicken in batches in your deep fryer for about 10 minutes or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. (or you can fry in hot oil at about 325 degrees in your wok for about 3-4 minutes or until golden brown).
  •  In a bowl whisk together ketchup, honey, sugar, water, vinegar, cornstarch, sesame oil, orange juice, orange zest, and sesame seeds. Pour into a wok and cook until the sauce is thickened and bubbly. Mix in a bowl with the fried chicken pieces.
