Sesame Chicken

from Eating Out Loud

1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
1/2 teaspoon chinese five spice powder
2 tablespoons sesame seeds
1 pound chicken breast
2 tablespoons flour
2 teaspoons peanut oil
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 chopped green onion

1. Mix together the soy sauce, water, maple syrup, five spice powder and ginger. Stir until combined and set aside. Place the flour and pepper into a flat dish and set aside. Place the sesame seeds in pan and toast over medium heat until lightly browned, and again, set aside.
2. Slice the chicken into 2 inch cubes, then coat in the flour. Heat a skillet and add the peanut oil. Place the chicken into the skillet and cook until browned on all sides.
3. When the chicken is cooked through, add the sauce mixture and toss to coat chicken. Cook an additional 3-5 minutes (the sauce will thicken as it cooks down). Sprinkle the chicken with sesame seeds and chopped green onion. Serve over steamed rice and/or some kind of vegetable.
