Honey-Orange Chicken with Sesame Sauce

To the 8-years Old Friendship! To Yambem & Bunny! Love you Both.

This one was our in our 31st Night Girls-In Party Dinner. I and my old friend Nandita (we share the same Name!) Yambem spent a great 31st night with her 2 years old son Boon. Boon was busy in his cute-naughty things & I was busy with trying some new recipes. My friend Yambem was taking care of us :) But that night, we missed our old friend & my best friend Nabamita, the third member of our "N-Team" (our name starts with 'N').

This recipe went very well with the Pulao. I was not able to post the recipes regularly because of a major incident of my life. Now I have done my work for that "Major Thing", now waiting for the result. Wish me Luck! After the result, I'll be very much regular in posting. I have so much recipes to share with you all. In the mean time, you can visit my Facebook page "Foods from my Kitchen".

I am sorry I could not take the photo, as my friend R, who always reminds me about taking photographs after I finish cooking something, was not present on that day. But I would love if any of my readers share their photo.


3/4 cup(s) fresh orange juice
1/3 cup(s) orange blossom or clover honey
1 teaspoon(s) grated ginger
1 teaspoon(s) garlic
1 teaspoon(s) orange zest
1 teaspoon(s) salt
1/8 teaspoon(s) ground black pepper
500gm Chicken
1 teaspoon(s) vegetable oil
1 teaspoon(s) toasted sesame oil
1 teaspoon(s) toasted sesame seeds


1. Combine juice, honey, ginger, garlic, zest, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Add chicken; stir to coat. Cover; refrigerate 30 minutes.

2. Heat a large skillet over medium heat until hot; add vegetable oil and swirl to coat. Lift chicken from marinade and let excess drip back into bowl. When oil is hot, add chicken and cook over medium heat 3 minutes per side, or until golden brown.

3. Add reserved marinade to skillet and boil over medium-high heat, turning chicken once or twice, 3 to 5 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through and sauce is reduced by half. Transfer chicken to a cutting board, cut into diagonal slices, and arrange on a platter. Stir sesame oil into thickened sauce and spoon it over chicken. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.
