Imagine a Saturday night when your family needs an appetite apart from their regular dishes… Their demand can easily be fulfilled if you prepare Honey Sesame Chicken for them.

You would be exuberant to have a lovely tangy dish for your family’s dinner or lunch. And I am sure Honey Sesame Chicken would make your day. You would love yourself when you hear praising words from your husband!!! You would require maximum of just an hour to prepare the whole recipe so that your kids won’t have to wait long for the tasty dinner… 😊😊😊

Not every sauce would be perfect with honey sesame chicken. So now we are going to prepare our own customized sauce that would perfectly go with the Honey Chicken Recipe. The honey you are going to add in the sauce will give an elevated richness to it.

Usually, when I prepare Chicken I would go with a hot recipe but this one is with honey!!!!! It is as sweet as my family.😊😊😊 At first, I was reluctant to add honey the sauce. But I was startled to know how well honey can go with chicken. The crispy toppings of sesame seeds added an amazing flavor.

My husband never prefers the addition of any ingredients that would make the dish less hot. I once cooked him this dish and he was like “Woooooooowwwwwwwww….” I never told him that I had added honey but he found it somehow with his astonishing flavor-instinct. Hurray!!!! I have succeeded as a home-cook.😊😊😊 And now he wants to taste it every weekend… Since it is easy to marinate and fry I find it heartwarming and contented to prepare what they ask for.

Its Honey-Sesame-Chicken time already!!!!!! Let’s now begin the mighty preparation. Preparations would take the only maximum of 10 minutes for marinating and frying. The only wait you have is for the marinated chicken to get soaked fully.

Adding little coriander leaves or mint leaves at the final stage would give you a minty flavor. It would give you a certain south Indian taste if you do so. Be careful to add the coriander just at the last minute, just before you switch off your stove. 😊😊😊
