This is NOT Mr. Lee's Sesame Chicken (Littleton, NH), but seeing as there is no such dish made here in Bolivia, this really hit the spot. My wife kept raving about this dish. I did not have the dry sherry, but I used the chinese wine that is often used in their sauces (sorry, don't remember the name of it). Also, I thought that there was not enough batter, so after frying the chicken I made another batch of 'batter' adding smashed garlic this time and refried the meat. Delicious! As far as the sauce is concerned, I did it according to recipe to see how it would turn out. I felt that it lacked its 'redness', so I took Mr. Lee's advice and squirted in some ketchup and that did the trick. It has been at least 3 years since I had this dish, so this really hit the spot. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
