Sesame Chicken

This is a wonderful 'sweet and savory' dish.
The only thing I will change next time I make it will be using chicken without the bone.
We used drumsticks, and it took too long to cook, but they were still very tasty.
Sesame Chicken
Recipe from Our Family Treat 

Chicken of your choice
2 tblsp corn starch
1 cup flour
1 tsp salt and pepper
1 egg beaten
2 tblsp water
2 tblsp butter or margarine
2 tsps honey
1/2 teaspoon garlic chili paste (I used regular garlic paste)
1 tblsp soy sauce
1 1/2 cups chicken stalk
2 tblsp sesame seed toasted

First beat the egg and add in the water in a shalow bowl.  
Roll chicken in the egg and water  mixture.  
In a plastic sealable freezer bag mix the flour, salt and pepper, and 1 tblsp of the corn starch.  
Put the wet chicken into the bag and shake until chicken is coated.  

In a large skillet on med-high heat, melt the butter, and fry the chicken on each side until golden brown.  
Place chicken off to the side.  (I ended up putting my chicken into the oven to help it finish cooking).

To the pan add the chicken stalk, chili paste, soy sauce, honey and corn starch. 
(Hint: in order to prevent clumping of the corn starch, mix it in the stalk cold, before adding to heat).
Stir often until begins to thicken.  Reduce heat and add the chicken back in.  
Cook until the sauce is about the consistency of the honey and begins to coat the chicken. 
Sprinkle in the sesame seeds over the chicken.
