Sweet & Sticky Sesame Chicken

Sweet & Sticky Sesame Chicken

This is a recipe I made for a greek portal for mommies here in Greece! I will however translate it for you because this is a dish worth trying!!!


For the Chicken:

  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken thighs cut into quarters
  • Olive oil
  • Salt
  • 6 Tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 1 egg
  • 4 teaspoons corn flour
  • 3-4 cups of boiled, steamed rice
  • Sesame seeds to garnish

For the Sauce:

  • 6 Tablespoons of honey
  • 4 Tablespoons ketchup
  • 3 Tablespoons sticky brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons vinegar
  • 3 Tablespoons Soya sauce
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 pressed garlic clove


  1. Add all the ingredients for the sauce in a bowl and mix well. Set aside for the time being. 
  2. In 3 separate bowls add the flour, the egg (slightly beaten) and the corn flour. In this order, crumb the chicken and set it aside on a clean plate.
  3. Cover the base of a pan with olive oil and fry the chicken pieces for 3-4 minutes on high heat on each side! If you have a small pan, add a few pieces at a time. 
  4. Add all the pieces in the pan and pour the sauce over the top. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes! If you want a richer sauce just double the ingredients!!
  5. Serve on rice and sprinkle with sesame seeds then…INDULGE!
