RECIPE - Reykjaviky's Chinese Restaurant Style Sesame Chicken SAUCE

I originally posted this my/original recipe several years ago on Copykat, Allrecipe and Recipe Exchange sites under the name Reykjaviky. It seemed to become very popular as that I am seeing it all over the Internet now. So I am re-posting it on my personal blog. It is absolutely the exact, yummiest recipe for Chinese restaurant style sesame chicken SAUCE. This is the SAUCE recipe only. Here goes:

It took me about 2 weeks but..FINALLY! I finally created the correct homemade recipe for Chinese Restaurant Style Sesame Chicken SAUCE! I was told by a man that owned a Chinese restaurant that it was too complicated and took too long to make it for anyone to copy it.

That is all I needed to hear!!!

I went home and spent 2 weeks perfecting it. HA!!! No Big Deal!! I know how to cook and I knew I could figure it out. This was several years ago, way before you could find every single thing or recipe you needed to know on the Internet. I made this recipe on my own. Under the name Reykjaviky.

Anywho…..The most important part is that there is absolutely NO Chinese 5 spice, NO honey AND very, very littler vinegar. MUST use DARK SOY SAUCE. A few of these ingredients might be tricky to find but it is well worth the quality SESAME OIL, DARK SOY SAUCE and CHILE PASTE.

Trust me. this is the real deal. All the other recipes I tried ended up tasting like sweet and sour sauce or honey dip sauce.


1\2 cup water

1 cup chicken broth (I prefer organic)

2 Tablespoons white vinegar (or rice vinegar)

1/4 cup  cornstarch

1 cup sugar

2 Tablespoons DARK Soy Sauce

2 Tablespoons Sesame Oil (NOT light sesame oil. Use regular or toasted)

1 teaspoon Chili Paste *taste test if you want more...this stuff is HOT* (found in oriental/Asian section of grocery store. Or if you are lucky enough to live where there are 'international' grocers, you can easily find this and the other ingredients there.

1 clove of garlic (finely minced)

Toasted sesame seeds (optional) to sprinkle on top of the chicken when plated.

Mix all ingredients...Stir CONTINUOUSLY while bringing to a gently boil...the cornstarch gets very sticky otherwise... you can fry your own chicken...white or dark meat...I prefer dark.

Or just bring home some fried chicken from the store or from a fast food place and dip it in the sauce. (less messy, much easier and just as yummy).

You can also make any type of rice and/or steam some broccoli if you really wanna make a big meal of it and more like Chinese take out. Just put the chicken on top of the rice and broccoli and drizzle the sauce. OMG, you will LOVE IT!!! p.s.To spice up a relationship... you can also spread this on your favorite persons favorite part and lick it off...slowly that is ;)
