Gluten Free Sesame Chicken

This is:

My most asked for recipe

My most asked for food to make when bringing a main dish

My most asked for dish to make at home

and…………..I have decided to share with everyone.


It is just one of those recipes that pleases everyone, even the pickiest of eaters.  Who doesn’t love a breaded chicken covered in sugary goodness?   But be prepared to over-indulge.   Lets just say 4 of us today devoured the whole batch, but most people have smaller appetites so you may get many more servings out of your batch.


Let’s Marinate our chicken!


It’s best to start the night before but if you didn’t then at least give it 30 minutes.


4 Tbsp. tamari soy sauce

6 drops of sesame oil

4 Tbsp. gluten-free flour blend

4 Tbsp. cornstarch

4 Tbsp. water

½ tsp baking powder

½ tsp baking soda

2 tsp olive oil

3 lbs chicken breast or thigh cubed with fat taken off


Mix cornstarch and water until smooth and then add in all the other ingredients except chicken.   It will form a bubbling brew of sorts.

Place chicken and sauce in a marinating container or simply put it into a gallon bag and place in the refrigerator until ready to fry.



Now for the sauce and putting everything together.
