Serves:

Prep:

25 Min

Cook:

40 Min

Ingredients

1 lb.
chicken breasts, boneless and skinless
1
well beaten egg
1/2 c
cornstarch
3 Tbsp
canola oil
2 Tbsp
more canola oil
1/2 c
sugar
1/2 c
ketchup
4 Tbsp
white vinegar
6
cloves of garlic, crushed or minced
1/2 tsp
white pepper
2 Tbsp
sesame seeds

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cut chicken into strips. Dip into egg, then cornstarch and place over medium heat in frypan with 3 tablespoons canola oil. Brown on all sides.
2
When chicken is brown on all sides remove from pan.
3
In the same pan add next 2 tablespoons of Canola oil and the remaining 5 ingredients. Whisk together and heat to a boil. Return chicken to pan. Reduce heat to simmer. Stir to coat chicken. Simmer for approx. 15 minutes or until chicken is fully cooked. Careful not to burn sauce as you simmer because the sauce has sugar in it, it tends to easily scorch. Before serving chicken add 2 tablespoons of sesame seeds. I serve this with rice of choice (yellow saffron goes well)and a green vegetable.
