Sesame Chicken with chillies & honey

My collegues cum friends were invited yesterday evening at my place for an evening of chilling. After a hectic day at office, combating with deadly deadlines, this was a welcome relief to unwind with all of them , there were three of us !!!

While beer never gave us a moment to get bored, and contributed towards free flow of words, i guess food that i prepared made an impact as well. One of the dishes which i particularly loved was this chicken dish. It was easy and the ingrediants easily available as well.

I marinated the chicken cubes (aproxx 250 gm ) with 1egg, 1tsp of white pepper powder, 1tbsp of cornflour, salt, 1tsp of ginger juice & keep aside half in hour.
Heat oil in a an and fry them till light brown in colour. Place them on a tissue paper to drain excess oil.
Time to make the sauce now.
Toast some seasame  seeds and keep aside.
Heat oil ( Vegetable oil about 1tbsp) & add 3 chopped dry red chillies to it & 1/2 tsp of finely chopped ginger and saute well. Add about 45ml of honey to your pan and about 3 tbsp of chicken of vegetable stock (please use boiling hot stock) & mix.
In goes all the fried chicken pieces & coat it well with the honey mixture. Add to the pan along with 1tsp of dark soy, 1&1/2 tsp of white pepper powder, and 1 tsp of white vinegar. Stir well.
Add the seasame seeds to it & serve hot.

A quick dish, super easy to make and easy to diggest as well. Beer paired extremely well with it.
