Sesame Glazed Chicken
For the glaze:
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • ¼ cup white sugar
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons Asian chili sauce
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons hoisin sauce
  • ½ teaspoon Sesame oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced (1½ teaspoons)
Other ingredients:
  • 4-5 boneless skinless chicken breasts, trimmed and pounded to uniform thickness
  • Toasted Sesame seeds
  • Green onion, diced
  • Rice or Noodles
  1. Combine the cornstarch and water in a small jar and shake well to combine. Set aside.
  2. In a saucepan combine the soy sauce, sugars, vinegar, Asian chili sauce, lemon juice, hoisin sauce, Sesame oil and garlic. Bring the mixture to a boil. While whisking constantly slowly add the cornstarch and water mixture. Reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes.
  3. Place the chicken in a glass baking dish. Pour the glaze mixture over the chicken.
  4. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 25-30 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.
  5. Serve over rice or noodles, sprinkle with Sesame seeds and green onions.
Cook's Notes:
  1. I served the chicken over rice.
  2. I just simmered the rice according to package instructions in chicken broth and added some thawed peas and carrots at the end of cooking.
