Cut chicken into bite size pieces. Place chicken into a small baking dish or zip lock freezer bag. Pour the buttermilk over the chicken. You want enough buttermilk so that the chicken is completely covered. Place the chicken with buttermilk into the fridge for at least an hour or two.
Setup your breading station:
- Bowl 1: crack eggs into bowl, add S&P and whisk well
- Bowl 2: add flour, S&P and mix well
- Bowl 3: add Italian and Panko Breadcrumbs
Preheat oven to 400 Degrees. Spray a baking sheet and set aside. Remove chicken from fridge.
Remove chicken from the buttermilk, dredge each piece into the flour and then the egg and then the breadcrumb. Place chicken onto baking sheet and repeat until all chicken is coated. Place in oven and bake for approx. 15 minutes or until chicken is done.
While the chicken is cooking, make the Sauce. On the stove, in a small pot, add all the sauce ingredients. Whisk together and simmer until chicken is done.
Remove chicken from oven and immediately transfer to the bowl and pour the sauce over the chicken. Add the toasted sesame seeds and toss gently to coat all pieces. Transfer to a serving platter and garnish with your green onions.
Toasted Sesame Seeds: you can buy sesame seeds already toasted or toast them yourself. To toast, you can add to a saute pan and place on stove over a low heat. Toss around and heat through just until they start to turn a little darker. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
If you like a sweeter sauce you can add about 2 Tablespoons of a Sweet Chili Sauce to the sauce. You could substitute this for the chili paste if you like.
