    List of Ingredients

    2 Tbsp sesame seeds, raw
    1 Tbsp water
    1 Tbsp low-sodium soy sauce
    1 Tbsp maple syrup
    1 Tbsp dry sherry
    1 tsp ginger root, fresh, minced
    1/2 tsp five-spice powder
    2 Tbsp all-purpose flour
    1/2 tsp table salt
    1/4 tsp black pepper
    1 pound uncooked boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 2-inch pieces
    2 tsp peanut oil


    Place a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add sesame seeds and cook until lightly toasted, shaking pan frequently, about 2 to 3 minutes; transfer seeds to a shallow dish and set aside.

    Whisk water, soy sauce, maple syrup, sherry, ginger and five-spice powder together in a small bowl; set aside.

    Combine flour, salt and pepper together in a shallow dish; add chicken and turn to coat. Shake chicken pieces to remove excess flour.

    Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and sauté until browned on all sides, about 5 minutes. Add soy sauce mixture to chicken and cook until sauce thickens and is almost evaporated, about 2 to 3 minutes more.

    Dip chicken pieces in toasted sesame seeds and serve, drizzled with any additional soy sauce mixture. Yields about 4 strips per serving.
