One of the things I want to get better at is cooking Chinese style food. This recipe for Sesame Chicken is one of the first I have come up with, and I must say it is a keeper. I started researching how to make it and, through trial and error, figured out what I liked and what I didn’t like.
The Sesame Chicken Recipe that I created is so easy to make, and it tastes fantastic. I am going to continue to experiment with this style of cooking. My teenage son wants me to try Chinese dumplings, but I may have to work up to that one.
