Due to job requirements, we have moved a lot over the years.
Whenever we moved into a new city or town, one of the first things we looked for was a good Chinese restaurant. As many as there are, you wouldn't think it would be that hard to find a good one, but it is.
About the time we finally located one that we really loved, it would be time to move again.
My family loves Chinese food. Whether it is Kung Pao Chicken, Cashew Chicken, Sesame Chicken, Chicken Chow Mein, or another dish, everyone comes running when Chinese food is on the menu.
Since we enjoy it so much, I decided to try my hand at making it at home.
The first time I tried to make egg drop soup, no one would eat it (except me!). It looked awful, but tasted good enough that I was encouraged to keep trying.
If your family enjoys Chinese food, too, I hope you enjoy this sesame chicken recipe. I will be adding more recipes soon.
I found this great recipe on www.food.com.
