It was delicious. I didn't use the ginger and used Splenda instead of the Raw Sugar. I think next time I will make some of the sauce and simmer it on the stove to serve with the meal. Overall, an easy and simple substitute for take out. Submitted by:

My family really liked this! I also omitted the sugar and just used more honey. I also didn't use as much sesame seeds because they are so expensive that 1/4 cup would've cost about $10! It took much longer to cook than 5 minutes per side, however. I turned up the oven to 375 and then 400. Submitted by:

Gorgeous recipe! I have made this about 4 times now for my family and they love it! I reduced the sugar to 2 teaspoons instead of 2 tablespoons and added extra sesame seeds. Delicious thank you PISCESWOMAN87 Submitted by:

My kids and I love this recipe. Delicious. I have used many of the suggestions. I used brown sugar instead of cane sugar, 1 Tbsp of olive oil, no cinnamon, use low sodium soy sauce and 1/8 cup of the sesame seeds. We love it over brown rice with some fresh steamed veggies! Submitted by:

Great recipe. Added broccoli, onion, and pineapple stir fried to tender crisp. Tossed the marinated chicken in flour then sautéed the chicken in 1 tbs of sesame oil. Also only added 1 tablespoon of oil to the marinade and added sriricha sauce for some heat. Reduced honey to 1 tbs and no sugar. Submitted by:

Anybody have any lower sodium suggestions for soy sauce, teriyaki sauce, etc? It's disappointing to have to limit myself on Asian foods because the sauces are so high in sodium. Submitted by:

It was fantastic, sooooo nice. Used turkey instead of chicken and that worked really well. Served with some stir fried vegs and rice. Will be made again and again. Only used 1.5 tbsp of sugar and 1tbsp of oil, that was plenty sweet for the saus and marinade. Submitted by:

Didn't care for this much. It tastes salty but that's about the only flavor that's coming through. It certainly isn't a substitute for sesame chicken in a Chinese restaurant. Submitted by:

OMG. This recipe is amazing. The only thing I substituted was light brown sugar for raw cane. I doubled the sauce and poured it over some jazmine rice. This is the best recipe on here so far yet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Submitted by:

Made this tonight and it was AWESOME! I LOVE chinese food but the sodium and calories can be scary. This was an *excellent* alternative and did not disappoint. I served it over brown rice and string beans. If I were to make one critique, I would have liked a more difinitive serving size. Awesome! Submitted by:

Very Good. I did mine with 1.5 pounds chicken, 1 T olive oil, no sugar, and added 1T Teriyaki sauce and red pepper flakes as other reviewers suggested. Was great, and my little makeover made it higher protien with lower fat and lower carbs/sugar. Served over brown rice and microwaved stir fry vegs Submitted by:

this was ok. I think substituting honey for the sugar would have made the sauce stick to the chicken making it actually look like the picture. I added chili flakes as well as I do with a lot of recipes now days. Just need to thicken up this sauce some how. Submitted by:
