    Celiac.com 08/11/2015 - Sesame chicken is a big favorite with American diners. It's also a dish I generally avoid at restaurants, due to gluten concerns.

    Fortunately, sesame chicken is pretty easy to make. Here's a recipe for delicious gluten-free sesame chicken that comes together easily, and will have your guests smiling.

    • 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into pieces
    • 3 tablespoons potato starch or tapioca flour
    • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
    • 1 tablespoon canola or safflower oil
    • 3 garlic cloves, minced
    • 2-3 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds
    • 1 tablespoon gluten-free soy sauce, or tamari
    • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
    • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
    • ½ cup chicken stock
    • ½ teaspoon salt
    • ½ teaspoons pepper

    Directions:
    Heat oven to 400 degrees F.

    In a bowl, whisk together chicken stock, brown sugar, 1 tablespoon sesame oil, garlic cloves, soy sauce and vinegar. Set aside.

    Heat a large oven-proof skillet over medium-high heat.

    Toss chicken with salt, pepper and tapioca flour or potato starch.

    Add olive oil and 1 tablespoon sesame oil to skillet, and once hot, add chicken in a single layer.

    Cook until seared and golden on one side, then turn and cook until golden again, about 2-3 minutes. Remove chicken onto a paper towel as it finishes cooking.

    Pour chicken stock mixture over top and toss to coat, then turn off heat.

    Place skillet in oven and bake at 400 degrees F for 15–20 minutes, until sizzling hot.

    Remove and top with sesame seeds.

    Serve with choice and brown or white rice.
