Ingredients

  • 500 g Chicken breast fillets
  • 4 Tablespoons Cornflour (heaped)
  • 2 large Eggs (lightly beaten)
  • 150 g Sesame Seeds
  • Salt and black pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Slice the chicken into thing strips
  • Sprinkle with salt and black pepper to taste
  • Coat each piece of chicken with cornflour, then with beaten egg, and finally with sesame seeds
  • Fry the chicken in batches in hot oil until golden brown
  • Drain on paper towels
  • Serve with your favourite dipping sauce

Notes

The calorie count is per piece of chicken, based on the assumption that you will get 25 strips of chicken from 500g.
To coat the chicken
  • first dip a piece of chicken in cornflour and shake off the excess
  • then dip in beaten egg and allow the excess egg to drip off
  • finally press each piece into the bowl of sesame seeds to coat evenly
If the coating ingredients run out before you have finished coating the chicken, just add more to the bowls.
Don't overfry or the chicken will be dry.  The chicken only takes minutes to cook as it is thinly sliced.  It is done when the outside is golden and the inside is no longer pink.
