"I've been looking for a good sesame chicken recipe. I adapted a few, and this tastes something like what I think it should. I used Fish and Things Teriyaki Marinade (on this site). It tastes a lot like Mr. Yoshida's teriyaki. If you prefer, you can substitute pancake syrup for honey, and fresh ginger for five-spice powder."
