I love going to Disney World. Epcot is one of my favorite parks and I am not going to lie it is because of the food! One of our favorite places to eat in Epcot is Nine Dragons. The Honey Sesame Chicken and the Sweet & Sour Pork are so good. This recipe is so good. It does take some work, but it is worth it! I like to double the sauce recipe.
- 3/4 cup of all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup of cornstarch
- 1 heaping tablespoon of baking powder
- 1 egg white, beaten
- 2/3 cups water
- 2 tablespoons of oil
- Pinch of salt
- 3 tablespoons of honey
- 1/4 cup of sugar
- 2 tablespoons of ketchup
- 1 tablespoon of white vinegar
- Pinch of salt
- Dash of white pepper powder
- Coarse salt, to taste
- Sugar, to taste
- 1/2 cup of water
- 1/2 cup of cooking wine (I used whatever I happened to have at the time)
- 2 teaspoons of sesame oil
- 3/4 pound boneless,skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1/2 inch by 2 inch strips
- Toasted white sesame seeds for serving (I did not use these)
For the batter
- Mix together the flour, cornstarch, and baking powder, then add the egg white, water, oil, and salt.
- Put the mixture aside for 30 minutes. Make the honey sauce while the batter is resting.
For the honey sauce
- In a bowl, mix the honey, sugar, ketchup, vinegar, and salt together.
- Set aside for use when the chicken is finished cooking.
For the chicken
- Stir the white pepper powder, salt,sugar, water, cooking wine, and sesame oil together in a medium bowl. Add the chicken and toss gently to coat. Let it stand for ten minutes to marinade.
- Pour enough oil into a 2 quart saucepan to come to a depth of 2 inches. Heat over medium-high heat to 320 degrees.
- Place the chicken pieces into the batter mixture and coat. Using tongs, drop into the hot oil and fry until golden brown, about two minutes. Drain on paper towels.
- After the chicken is fried, heat the honey sauce mixture in a clean frying pan over medium-high heat. Stir until the mixture bubbles.
- Mix the chicken pieces into the sauce with a spatula. Serve immediately sprinkled with the sesame seeds.
