    I used a chicken thigh. Didn't use the Sesame Oil for the frying (too unstable under heat) but added a touch at the end to flavor the dish. I also didn't have any sesame seed so did without that. Served it over .5 cup Jasmine rice. Overall it was a tasty dish and a large portion. Easily doubled. - 4/13/13
