Servings: 8

Makes 40 Appetizers


1 1/2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts

1 cup flour

1/2 tsp salt

2 large eggs

2 Tbs water

1 cup fine crumbs made from plain rice crackers or panko crumbs

1/2 cup sesame seeds

3 Tbs vegetable oil

Chinese Mustard Sauce:

1/4 cup mayonnaise

1/4 cup sweet and hot Chinese mustard

2 Tbs Dijon mustard

1 Tbs crystallized ginger, minced

1/4 cup rice wine vinegar

1/4 cup black bean sauce (with chili optional)

1/4 cup scallion, minced

2 cloves garlic, minced

4 tsp brown sugar


Preheat oven to 500°F. Trim chicken breasts, cutting them into 1-inch by 3-inch strips. In shallow dish, whisk together flour and salt. In another shallow dish, whisk together eggs and water. In third shallow dish, mix together crumbs and sesame seeds. Dredge chicken strips in flour, coating all sides. Dip chicken in egg; then roll chicken strips in crumb mixture to coat well.In large, non-stick skillet over medium-high heat, warm half the oil. Add half the chicken and saute until golden brown on all sides, about 5 minutes. Transfer chicken to baking sheet. Heat remaining oil in skillet and saute remaining chicken strips, transferring to baking sheet when done. Bake chicken until firm and crispy, about 8 minutes. Arrange on platter and serve with dipping sauces.

To make sauces: Mix together all ingredients for each sauce in two separate small bowls. Cover and set aside until ready to serve with chicken.
