Sibu Tales : "Orange Chicken" with sesame seeds


In the United States, a very popular chicken dish is "General Tso' Sesame Chicken.

When a West Bank Sibu restaurant Tang Kee started serving sesame chicken, people came in droves to order it for their lunch guests.

Sesame and chicken is a good marriage but is not Foochow in origin. The Tang Kee recipe is a whole chicken coated with a lot of sesame chicken.

Soon many other restaurants start to serve chicken nuggest coated with sesame seeds.

In other parts of Malaysia, there is also a fairly popular dish called Orange Chicken with sesame seeds.

In the age of the Internet, chefs today are more adventurous. It is now easy to find so many different kinds of chicken recipes, both new and traditional. And some are even "invented" for political reasons.

In fact the idea of chicken coated with sesame seeds might have come from the famous American Chinese dish called General Tso's Chicken. General Tso was a Hunanese but when researched, the Hunanese do not have this recipe.

There is a documentary film that premiered at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival. It was directed by Ian Cheny and produced by Amanda Murray and Jennifer B. Lee.
