REALLY tasty, and simple to make. I did make a few changes, based on many reviews here, and some worked out and some didn't. 1) Don't sub ginger for five spice. It gave the dish a strange taste. Not bad, just not very "sesame chicken" tasting. I would actually say if you don't have 5 spice, try garlic instead-- will give a more non-descript flavor that just adds to the spicyness. 2) I used half the amount of flour called for to dredge the meat, it was totally fine. 3) I tripled the sauce recipe, which seemed to be the right proportion, and 4) I used thinly sliced beef instead of chicken cubes, and it was every bit as tasty! Just had to adjust the pre-cooking time (just 4-5 minutes to brown), and then added the beef to the cooked sauce only to warm it up at the end. Overall-- GREAT tasting sauce, really authentic and curbs my sesame sauce cravings. Will definitely make this one again and again.
