Orange sesame seed chicken

1/2 cup orange juice
1/2 cup vinegar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon soy sauce

1 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
3 cups thinly sliced chicken
Oil, for frying

1/4 cup toasted sesame seeds

Combine orange juice, vinegar, salt, sugar and soy sauce in a large pot. Cook over medium-high heat for about 20 minutes or until it thickens to thin honey. Watch carefully to prevent mixture from boiling over. Set aside.

Mix flour, salt and pepper in a bowl. Coat chicken with flour mixture and shake off excess. Pour oil into a large pot to a depth of 3 inches. Heat oil to 350 degrees. Deep fry chicken until crisp and brown, about 5 minutes. Remove chicken from oil and drain on paper towels. Place in a large mixing bowl. Pour sesame sauce over chicken and mix well. Add sesame seeds, tossing well to coat. Serve over hot rice.
