Honey Sesame Chicken Cutlets 蜜糖芝麻鸡块

Bi-lingual | 双语版

We are having a small family potluck party tonight and I wanted to cook something that is suitable for all ages. My old ma likes food that are crunchy and so does my duo. I was out of idea so I decided to just do a round visit in the supermarket to find my inspiration, and I found. When I saw the  fresh chicken meat on the shelves, I thought to myself it's time to cook some traditional Chinese dish that is our family's favorite whenever we visit the restaurants - Sesame Chicken Cutlets, in honey sauce.

Served with some baby pak choy, it was quickly finished up in the dinner.

Give it a try, your little ones will probably thank you for it. ;)
