Question by emmalinesweets: Looking for a recipe for sesame sauce used on sesame chicken at chinese restaurants.?
So I absolutely love the sort of sweet, brown colored sesame sauce used in lots of chinese restaurants to make sesame chicken. Wondering if anyone has a recipe or knows where I can buy it?
Answer by KiKat2U
“This is the SAUCE for Chinese restaurant style sesame chicken and broccoli. This sauce can be poured over fried chicken, or used as a dipping sauce for fried chicken. I emphasize not using too much vinegar because it turns into a sweet-n-sour type sauce. But you do need a ‘touch’ of vinegar.”
1 cup white sugar
1/4 cup cornstarch
1 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup water
1/8 cup white vinegar
2 tablespoons dark soy sauce
2 tablespoons sesame oil
1 teaspoon chile paste
1 clove garlic, minced
In a saucepan, mix together sugar and cornstarch. Stir in chicken broth, water, vinegar, soy sauce, sesame oil, chile paste, and garlic. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Reduce heat, and simmer 5 minutes.
