Reviews for Sesame Fried Chicken
"I agree with the previous reviewer that the flour mixture needed salt, even after I added some it still needed more. I, however, did not make the gravy, so that could have helped. I thought the chicken was good and so did my kids, but my husband did not really care for it. Next time I would like to try it with the gravy,"
"The only reason i didn't give this a 5, was the flour mixture needed a bit of salt. The aroma of it cooking was fantastic...everyone ran to the table when I announced it was done. It took a LOT longer to fry since I used bone-in thighs, but it tasted great.It got everyone's vote for a do-over...and my son said "MMMMMMmmm" upon first bite. =)"
