Sesame Chicken

Recipe from a friend that I met at the gym many years ago. I had it at her house and it was delicious!


1/2 cup flour
2 teaspoons garlic salt
8 chicken thighs ( I deboned them)
4 tablespoon butter
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce
1/2 cup ketchup
1/4 cup honey
2 tablespoon cider vinegar
3 minced cloves garlic
1 teaspoon ginger
1 onion- sliced
2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds
2 tablespoons chopped green onions


In a medium size bowl combine flour and garlic. 

Wash and dry thighs and coat with the flour mixture.

Melt butter in a large skillet, add thighs. Brown on all sides and place in a 9 X 13 baking dish.

Add sliced onion to the skillet and saute until tender. Combine sugar, soy, ketchup, honey, vinegar, garlic and pour over onions in the skillet and combine.

Pour the onion mixture over the thighs in the baking dish.

Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 30- 40 minutes or until the thighs reach 165 degrees with internal probe thermometer.

Remove from oven and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Garnish with green onion.

CROCK POT VARIATION: This can be modified for the crock pot. Skip the pounding of the chicken. Also, do not dredge chicken in flour or brown in a skillet. Simply place onions in the bottom of a crock pot, top with chicken pieces. Combine sauce ingredients and pour over chicken. Cook on high for 5-6 hours or until chicken is tender. Stir in sesame seeds and garnish with green onions
