  • 4 chicken fillets
  • Juice of 2 large oranges or 5 tbsp boxed juice
  • 1 tbsp Shaoxing rice wine
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp white pepper
  • 1/4 cup toasted sesame seeds
  • 1/2 cup cornflour
  • 1 tsp orange peel
  • Preparation:
  • Dice the chicken fillets into 2 inch pieces and set aside
  • Make the marinade by mixing the orange juice, honey, rice wine, soy sauce, orange peel and white pepper
  • Add the chicken pieces, mix to coat completely, cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes
  • Meanwhile, add the sesame seeds to a hot pan and toast till they turn golden brown. A nutty aroma should emanate suggesting they are done
  • When you are ready to cook, remove the chicken from the marinade, reserving it, and place it into another bowl
  • Sprinkle the cornflour generously to coat the pieces of chicken in their entirety
  • Heat the sesame oil in a wok. Once it starts to bubble, add the chicken pieces and stir fry till golden brown
  • Lower the heat and add the marinade along with half the sesame seeds
  • As the sauce begins to thicken and starts to stick to the chicken pieces, take it off the heat
  • Sprinkle with the remaining sesame seeds and serve
