Chinese food question

I've looked at several Chinese recipes for things like Sesame chicken and so on. I can't find one that does them with a batter coating the chicken and then frying before coating them with the sesame sauce. Same with Sweet and sour dishes too.
Does anyone have an idea on what is used for the breading?

a light corn starch or lotus flour dusting is often used.

I have only ever used a dusting of corn starch.

Hmmm...could it be a tempura dish you're looking for?

Possibly, I thought about just using beer batter
but, it's too thin.

texasgirl, i've had the kind of battered sesame chicken that you're talking about, and it is more like a beer batter, but a little thicker and probably using rice flour or corn starch. sort of the same batter as you get deep fried butterflied shrimp in chinese restaurants.

Give it a try, Texas.

Only thing that comes to mind is Southern Fried Chicken. And, the tempura batter, I've usually had with veggies/sweet potatoes. Wonder if you could sprinkle the sesame seeds in the batter. Would be fun to experiment with.

Looks like we posted at the same time, BT. Forgot about those yummy butterflied shrimps. And remembered the orange sesame chicken I've had at Chinese restaurants. Would love the recipe too. If all else fails, I'd make beer-battered onion rings. :-]
