Orange Sesame Chicken

This is a simple version of a classic Asian Orange Sesame Chicken dish.

This dish has a wonderful zesty orange flavour without overpowering the dish.  The chilli provides a spicy offset to the orange flavour.  Garnished with sesame seeds and spring onion and you have a very tasty chicken dish. It is all cooked in a wok, so it is quick and easy to make.

I add the chilli to give some spice to this dish, however if you would prefer a more subtle spice or none at all, add the amount of chilli to your preference.

The orange sauce is not of the thick type that you sometimes get with Orange chicken.  It is a more refined version.  Serve with rice and you have a really great meal.
