Homemade Sesame Chicken
I’ve been in San Francisco and then Northern California with my daughter and one of my adopted daughters and haven’t posted much of late. It was the first time the three of us have been together in three years. Brettley lived with us for a year after she graduated from ORU and I love her dearly.
San Francisco was gloriously fun, even though it mostly rained while I was there, and I didn’t get to see the Golden Gate Bridge, which was almost invisibly masked by rain and fog.
Well I did get this shot, through the windshield as we were passing over it.
We walked through the Dragon’s Gate.
And we browsed around Chinatown, popping in and out of little shops.
There was the coolest wok store.
I intended to come back and get one and take a longer look at all the accessories at a later date, but I hadn’t counted on how busy we would be.
Kayla found a way to stay out of the rain, and this was pretty much how goofy we three were the entire time we were there.
And there were food shops everywhere. We had a list of about 40 bakeries, eateries and coffee shops to visit, and only two days to try to hit them all, so needless to say I did not get Chinese food in Chinatown.
However, I made this a few weeks back and it was delicious. It was fresh, and chock-full of veggies, and the best thing was, I didn’t have to wait for it to be delivered only to find out the crispiness of the chicken had turned soggy with the syrupy thick sauce that usually accompanies Sesame Chicken.
I made it so quickly I didn’t have time to take a lot of pictures but I’ve detailed it out for you in the printable recipe below! I hope you’ll take a try at making take-out food at home and see just how wonderful it is!
