Coup de coeur
Coup de coeur (Literature), by Ella
"But my favourite was the sesame chicken. I liked the way the sweetness contrasted with the spice, also that there were no vegetables in it." In a bowl combine honey, soy sauce, rice vinegar, a finely sliced garlic clove, an inch of peeled and chopped fresh ginger, sesame oil and sesame seeds. Cut boneless chicken thighs into bite-sized pieces and mix with 1/2 cup of cornstarch and salt and pepper. Heat vegetable oil in a large pan and fry chicken until golden. Add the sauce to the pan and cook until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce slightly thickened. Serve with sliced spring onions and a sprinkle of sesame seeds.
