Nigerian sesame chicken is a very delicious and crispy dish that goes very well with white boiled rice.






  1. Season the chicken with salt, paprika, black pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder. Coat the chicken with the beaten egg, and let rest for 30 minutes to marinate.
  2. Mix in the 3 tbsp cornstarch, making sure the chicken is fully coated.
  3. Heat an inch or two of oil in a pan.
  4. Place the chicken pieces in the hot oil. Fry for about 6–8 minutes until browned and crispy on each side.
  5. Remove the chicken from the oil and let cool.
  6. Heat the sesame oil in a wok. Add minced garlic, and cook for about 1 minute until fragrant.
  7. Add the honey and sugar. Cook for about 3 minutes on medium heat, stirring until thickened.
  8. Combine the 1 tbsp cornstarch and water, and stir into the sauce.
  9. Return the cooked chicken to the sauce, and mix to coat well. Garnish with sesame seeds and spring onions, and cook for 2 minutes over low heat.
  10. Serve hot.
