Garlic Glazed Chicken

Garlic Glazed Chicken
from the kitchen of Ellen, thanks to Pizza, by James McNair


  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds
  • 2 heads garlic, broken into cloves, peeled, and coarsely chopped
  • 2 tsps crushed dried chili pepper
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 5 tbs honey
  • 1 1/2 cups rice wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 5 boned and skinned chicken breast halves, cut into bite sized pieces
  • sesame seeds in small skillet over medium heat.  Toast the seeds, stirring or shaking the pan, until golden, about 4 minutes.  Empty onto a plate to cool.  Reserve.
  • garlic, crushed red pepper, soy sauce, honey, and vinegar in bowl.  Reserve.
  • vegetable oil in saute pan or large skillet over medium-high heat and saute chicken until opaque on all sides, about 3 minutes.  Remove with slotted spoon and reserve.  Pour the garlic mixture into the skillet and cook over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until the sauce is reduced to the consistency of syrup, about 15-20 minutes.  Return the chicken to the pan and cook, stirring constantly, until the pieces are lightly glazed, about 2 minutes.  Remove from heat and serve.
Optional additions:
  • the chicken is great by itself, but you might also add steamed broccoli, sugar snap peas, or other vegetable of choice.  Good over rice.
