    This was VERY good. The next time, I would put the sesame seeds on the chicken, after it was fried a bit. - 6/26/08

    This was awesome. I did however leave the cabbage out only because I was making other side dishes. But the sauce and the chicken were great! I was slightly skeptical of the wheat flour but the flavor added an nice earthy, nutty taste to it and sesame seeds gave it nice texture. Thank you! - 9/16/07

    It was great, but I prefer my sesame chicken sweeter, and with more sauce. To me it didn't really taste like sesame chicken. I'm still in the market for a great (and at least somewhat healthy) Sesame Chicken recipe but despite that I really enjoyed it, and will probably make it again - 8/20/07

    This tasted like it came from a restaurant! Modified it some, we used 2x egg whites and sprinkled the salt and sesame seeds on the top. Definitely a favorite! - 7/23/07
