Chinese Sesame Chicken Bites


I got the original from recipezaar.com, click here to see it. This tastes like the chicken bites you get at the mall, especially if you use chicken thigh meat vs. the breast meat. We prefer the thigh meat. Don't forget to adjust sauce to the quantity of meat using.

Just another reminder: make sure your soy sauce is gluten free. I use San J, but I believe that LaChoy is gluten free as well.

Ingredients
3 tablespoons brown sugar, packed
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon minced ginger
1 tablespoon oil
1 clove minced garlic
2 chicken breasts cut into cubes
3 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds
dash sesame oil
scallions slices (optional)
handful coarsely chopped peanuts (optional)

Combine brown sugar, soy sauce, sesame oil, and ginger in a small bowl. Set aside. Heat oil in heavy skillet. Add garlic and chicken. Saute over high heat for 3 minutes or until chicken is about half cooked. Give the soy sauce mixture a stir and add to chicken. Continue to saute over high heat until most of the liquid is evaporated and chicken is glazed, about 4 minutes. Remove from heat. Sprinkle with sesame seeds, peanuts and scallions. Combine before serving.

Do you have a favorite soy sauce? This looks very good! I will use thigh meat too- great suggestion.

I use San J wheat free tamari, and I really like it.

Also, LaChoy and Walmart's generic soy sauce are gluten free as well.

This is so easy to make and such a kid (and husband) pleaser.

This is a fabulous recipe. My husband prefers beef over chicken, but this is one recipe he requests and asks me to make enough so there are leftovers. Thank you so much for sharing your recipes.
