This is one that sounds very "WayneT"ish to me. I normally add sesame seeds to batter when deep frying chicken or fish cocktails, then serve with a sweet & sour sauce or whatever. Something I picked up from a ritzy Chinese restaurant once. Thanx for what looks like a rather delicious recipe.

Do either of you toast the sesame seeds first?

I quite often toast the seeds first for a change in flavour.
I add all kinds of weird and wonderful flavourings to my batters. For example, Chilli powder, poppy seeds, parsley in fish batter, Ground Schzechwan pepper corns, Parmesan cheese. A little Five Spice powder goes good in battered Sweet and sour pork. The sky's the limit.

Experiment, Experiment, Experiment

For a quick light batter, just mix your flour and spices and add, beer, soda water, lemonade or whatever soft drink you have on hand. Make the batter fairly thin. Flour meat or veges such as thin sliced eggplant, zuccini etc and dip into batter. Beautiful. No soft drink? just use flour and water plus some baking powder or use Self Raising flour if available.

Sarah, I made your Sesame Chicken last night. It was fantastic. So simple to make as well. I am going to give it a go in the oven next time, cook halfway with foil over and then finish off uncovered. Let you know how it goes.

Sarah,

I am making your sesame chicken tomorrow night for dinner. How long did you marinade yours? I think I might bake it, or maybe make some fried and some baked to taste the difference. Im trying to cut down on fried foods. I'll do what Wayne said and partially bake it with foil, then finish it off uncovered to crisp it up. Also, Im going to use chicken breasts and slice them into "tenders" size pieces and pound them out. Thanks for the recipe, it sounds great, my daughter is looking forward to this.

Amber,

It might be an Idea to put it on a wire
rack when baking or use Non Stick spray or both. The
last time I did a similar dish this way, straight in the
baking pan, the coating stuck on the bottom.
