Crispy Sesame Chicken

Hey guys! A delicious fakeaway style dish for today! Crispy Sesame Chicken, A tasty crispy chicken coated in a sticky sweet sesame sauce. Fakeaway favourite of mine!

I am a huge lover of an air fryer recipe and this is definitely a tasty one. This dish can be made in the oven too so don’t worry if you haven’t got an air fryer. It just might take a little longer in the oven. Feel free to also add any veggies or use different meats in this to suit whatever you may have or like.

I served my crispy chicken over rice but this can be made as a chicken bite snack or served over noodles or a salad, all up to you! I use panic breadcrumbs to coat my chicken but use whatever breadcrumbs you like, I am a big fan of the paxo golden breadcrumbs too!

If you have any questions Dm me on Instagram. Happy cooking! <3 Keep an eye out on my Instagram for a Reel of me making this Cookies & Cream Traybake Cake.
