Chinese Style Sesame Sauce

Rated as 4.23 out of 5 Stars

"This is the SAUCE for Chinese restaurant style sesame chicken and broccoli. This sauce can be poured over fried chicken, or used as a dipping sauce for fried chicken. I emphasize not using too much vinegar because it turns into a sweet-n-sour type sauce. But you do need a 'touch' of vinegar."

Loved it! I followed what some reviewers said about it being too sweet. So I used only a 1/4 cup of splenda. Yes, I used splenda and it turned out awesome. Will even make it for a large part...

This sauce had good flavor...once I made a few adjustments as suggested by other posters. (after making a batch and pitching it ~ therefore only 3 stars) 1 cup of sugar is way too much. I use...

Excellent sauce! It does not get any better than this recipe! This is truly an authentic recipe! We use 1/4 cup of vinegar but this is just our taste preference. We use it for sesame chicken...

I absolutely love this recipe...it makes stir fry a lot better...my friends love it so much and beg me to make for them all of the time plus they all got the recipe from me

This had a wonderful flavor. I added extra garlic and substituted a 1/2 cup of flour for the cornstarch. I will certainly make this again.
