Honey Sesame Chicken

Best ever honey sesame chicken. Easy honey sesame chicken recipe with fried chicken pieces in a sticky sweet and savory honey sesame sauce!

Honey chicken is one of the most popular Chinese recipes on Rasa Malaysia. I create that recipe two years ago and many readers have requested variations of that recipe. Today, I am creating a new recipe called honey sesame chicken, which is quite popular on Pinterest (remember to follow me).

Honey Sesame Chicken

To make honey sesame chicken, all you need are a few everyday ingredients that you can get at any food stores or supermarkets. There is no need to go to Chinatown or specialty Asian stores for the ingredients. I am going to make it very simple for you so you can just whip it up anytime you want.

While most people don’t like to do deep-frying at home, I strongly urge you to do so with this honey sesame chicken recipe and other Chinese recipes on Rasa Malaysia. The reason why we all love Chinese takeouts and dishes so much is because of the deep-fried chicken coated with rich and savory sauce. Eat them with some warm steamed rice and you have your guilty pleasure. So I say forget about baked chicken, let’s fry the chicken and give your stomach and palate a treat. We all deserve to indulge once in a while.

Honey Sesame Chicken

The sweetest thing is that you don’t even really need to deep fry the chicken as shallow fry works very well at home. You don’t need a deep fryer, or 6 inches of oil to deep fry a batch of chicken for dinner. You just need a small saute pan, non-stick preferably for ease of cleaning and frying, about 2 inches of oil, a pair of long chopsticks and you are good. There is no wastage of oil, no splattering oil, but gloriously fried chicken pieces ready to be cooked with the sweet, tangy, and savory honey sesame sauce. Easy breezy and no fuss!

Here is my honey sesame chicken recipe. Just look at the pictures above, I am sure you will love it when you try my recipe!

    Did you mean “Honey Sesame Sauce” instead of “Garlic Sesame Sauce” in the directions?

  3. This looks fantastic. Bookmarking it to try soon. Thanks for sharing!

  4. jenny c says:

    where it says when the hot is fully heated do you mean when the oil is fully heated?

  5. Amber Howell says:

    Just tried this recipe and it is sooooooo good. Thanks for the recipe!

    Are the chick breasts raw when dunked in batter or cooked chunks

  7. lola says:

    I made this dish tonight. It was just okay. I feel the batter was a bit thick and would rather have made a tempura batter instead just because it is lighter. It also made a huge mess in the kitchen due to the fact that the battered chicken spattered all over the place. I will probably not make this recipe again.

  8. Michelle says:

    Tried this, used chicken thighs instead because that’s what I had. My family loved it!

  9. Jessica says:

    Oh my! This dish was absolutely delicious! Our 9 year old son loved it! We added fresh pineapple to the chicken after frying and draining the grease from the chicken, then tossed in the sauce. Wonderful!

    How long does this take to make?

  11. nichole says:

    I made this tonight and my whole family LOVED it. Only thing I did differently was frying in coconut oil. Will definitely add this to my “to make again” list.

  12. Marilyn Tatum says:

    I made this and substituted agave syrup for the honey, it was very nice indeed!

    I just made this the other night and it was a hit. Super easy recipe to follow and the result was incredible. I struggled with making asian dishes at home. I’ve tried tons of recipes from various cookbooks and websites and none of them were all that good. They all seemed to be missing “something” and I kind of gave up trying to cook asian food at home until I found your website. My boyfriend and I have tried about 5 different recipes so far and EACH one was AMAZING. Thanks so much for sharing all these recipes online, they are fantastic.
