Absolutely fantastic. As most people, I made some changes. I added a teaspoon of cornstarch to the flour mixture, and got the perfect coating when fried. Also, only 1/2 c flour is needed for 1 1/2 pounds of chicken. I left out 5-spice because I hate the licorice flavor, and substituted ground ginger. Finally, as almost everybody seems to agree, this needs much more sauce. I used 12 TBS teriyaki and 8 TBS honey, and it was just the right amount. If you want sauce to cover rice as well, you'd need even more.
Instead of mixing the sesame seeds in, I sprinkled them on the finished dish so they would stick to the sauce.
Also, I left out the crushed red pepper because of the kids, but I put it on my own serving and it was the perfect complement.
This will be one of our favorite recipes, and I have a feeling my wife and I are going to fight over the leftovers for lunch.
