Sesame Chicken Recipe 1
Sesame Chicken Recipe Ingredients:
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons onion, minced
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds

  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon instant minced garlic
  • 6 to 7 pounds chicken parts, or 2 broiler chickens
Sesame Chicken Recipe Instructions

Combine soy sauce, water, vegetable oil, onion, cauenne pepper, sesame seeds, sugar, salt, and minced garlic. If using whole chickens, cut into quarters; pour the sesame mixture over the chicken pieces and refrigerate for 8 to 12 hours. I use large food storage bags to marinate.

Remove the chicken and reserve the marinade. Put marinade in a saucepan and bring to a rolling boil. Grill chicken over medium coals until done, using the reserved boiled marinade as basting sauce. The chicken should register about 175° on an instant read thermometer when inserted in a meaty section (not touching bone).
