Sweet food for us humans, there is an irresistible temptation. That kind of eating, the mouth still has a sweet taste, always let people imagine. Honey, of course, is nature's best sweet. Seeds also give life and hope.
The chef of Panda Express is talented in cooking. When you look at Chinese food culture, I really can't imagine that a long time ago, Chinese people began to study how to eat and how to eat well. Today, let's talk about the Panda Express Honey Sesame Chicken. This dish is one of the few non-spicy entrees in Panda Express. Maybe you can feel it's just a little bit spicy.
Why? I think honey goes with sesame. The chefs at Panda Express want to highlight sweetness and fragrance. If it is too spicy, the flavor of sesame will be weakened. Imagine, when we eat a mouthful of sweet chicken, there are still a few sesame seeds in our mouth. Then chew the remaining sesame, it's really sweet.
Moreover, this Honey Sesame Chicken is also matched with sweet pepper. The whole dish can be described in one sentence, sweet, and crisp.
The following is the description of the Honey Sesame Chicken on Panda Express's official website. Honey Sesame Chicken Breast is made with thin, crispy strips of all-white meat chicken tossed with fresh-cut string beans, crisp yellow bell peppers in a sizzling hot wok with our new delicious honey sauce and topped off with sesame seeds.

To coat the chicken breast add the egg, salt, pepper, and 1 tablespoon oil into a medium bowl and whisk together well.
In a second bowl, add 1/2 cup corn starch and 1/4 cup flour and mix.
In a large dutch oven or a wok, heat oil to 375 degrees (about 2 inches of oil).
Dip chicken pieces in the egg mixture, then dredge in the flour mixture.
Fry the chicken in batches for 3 to 4 minutes or until golden and crisp then remove with a slotted spatula, draining the oil well.
To make the sauce combine the sweet chili sauce, honey, water, white vinegar, lemon juice, salt, soy sauce, and cornstarch in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil and cook until it thickens (don't make the sauce in your chicken pan).
When you are done with the chicken, drain most of the oil from the pan (leave about 2 tablespoons).

Remove from heat and garnish with sesame seeds before serving.
Panda Express Honey Sesame Chicken Copycat - Sweet and Savory Meals
When I was in University, I had Panda Express once a week. Personally, as fast-food, Panda Express is generally healthy. It's better than fried chicken hamburger, and it's more greasy than subway tuna with a lot of tomatoes and onions without sauce. In terms of taste, Panda Express should be regarded as the most typical flavor of American Chinese fast-food.
Sweet, fried, chicken, beef, and shrimp make up the most popular dishes. I remember when I was a freshman, I would choose two entrees because I could eat them at that time. My favorite is the Honey Sesame Chicken and Kung Pao chicken, plus egg flower soup or hot and sour soup. When Panda Express has fried dumplings, I always order them.
To junior began a healthy life, basically brown rice, steamed vegetables, and Honey Sesame Chicken. Panda Express accompanied me through the whole university life. I also feel lucky to be able to eat Panda Express at the University.
