As the name would suggest, this dish goes hard on the sesame flavor. Just like Chinese Chicken Burgers, it isn’t an authentic Chinese dish but has been popularized by Asian American restaurants. Sesame chicken isn’t usually marinaded, although some recipes do call for a brief soak in sesame oil and soy sauce.

Situated in the scenic Robertson Wine Valley, Rietvallei Wine Estate offers the ideal destination for a day trip. This estate has a long heritage dating back to 1864 when it was purchased by Alewyn Burger for his son Jacobus Francois. Pioneering wine farmer Koos Burger farmed the estate for many years. In 1908, at the age of 70, he planted a Muscadel vineyard on the farm, which would become one of the oldest of its kind in South Africa. Over 150 years of family ownership makes the estate one that is rooted in history and tradition.
