White Meat Sesame Chicken

When you placed sesame chicken order in US,mostly all Chinese restaurant or take out restaurant serve dark meat sesame chicken instead of white meat chicken.If requested your sesame chicken use white meat chicken,there is extra $2.00 charge!! weird , right? why white meat chicken is more expensive and the demand is greater than dark meat chicken in US? I understand Chinese people love dark meat chicken rather than white meat but not American. These days people talk about health conscience so white meat chicken is suitable for those who really watch what they are eating.Personally I like white meat chicken in sesame chicken,sorry I'm not on-diet! haha!

Because white people are fucking retarded obese shit-for-brains. They eat their foil-wrapped chicken, brown rice, sweet and sour soup and wash it down with a diet coke. White meat is garbage and is tastless. Anyone arguing differently always has to qualify it by saying you have to "cook" it correctly. Foolish losers.

Made this last night. The sauce was only enough to coat the chicken pieces. I need more of the sauce so next time I will triple the amount of sauce. Also, I think I'll try broiling the chicken to reduce the oil. Thanks

With sesame? I thought it's used only for sweet things like rolls, bread and other sweets.

But that looks great, I guess I will try to make that! Thanks for the recipe!
