Honey Sesame Chicken from Nine Dragons (Epcot: China Pavilion)
*serves 4


Ingredients:

4 chicken breasts, cubed


Marinade:

1/2 cup water
1 teaspoon chicken base (it's a paste, usually found near boullion cubes in most supermarkets)
white pepper, to taste
salt, to taste
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon cooking wine
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil


Batter:

3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 cup cornstarch
1 egg, beaten
2/3 cups water
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
pinch of salt


Honey Sauce:

1/8 cup honey
1/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon white vinegar


Garnishes:

toasted sesame seeds
chopped green onions (optional)


Directions:


Mix marinade ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Add in cubed chicken and let sit in fridge for at least 1 hour.

Mix batter ingredients in a separate large bowl. Set aside.

In a medium-size saucepan, heat the honey sauce ingredients, stirring well.

Remove chicken from fridge and create an assembly line of bowls: 1. chicken 2. batter 3. sauce

Heat a deep pan with 1 inch of cooking oil on medium high until it reaches 320 degrees F. 

Take pieces of chicken from marinade and dip into the batter. Transfer to hot oil immediately. Cook until golden brown and cooked through. Place on a paper towel lined plate to drain.

Transfer all of the fried chicken chunks to a large bowl and pour the heated honey sauce over. Toss carefully with tongs to coat all pieces. Serve on plate with a side of steamed rice (recipe below) or stir-fried noodles. Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds and green onions (optional). 



Steamed Rice

2 cups white rice
2 1/2 cups water
Salt, to taste

Place rice in a strainer and rinse until water runs clear. Transfer to a medium-size pot. Pour in water. Place tight-fitting lid on pot and heat on high for 5-10 minutes until boiling. Remove lid and add salt. 

Turn heat to low and replace the lid. Cook for an additional 15-20 minutes until rice is tender. Remove from heat and leave lid on to let steam for 5 minutes before serving. 

Enjoy!
