Addictive Sesame Chicken

2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon chicken broth
1 dash sesame oil
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons water
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon canola oil
4 (5 ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cut into 1-inch cubes

1 quart vegetable oil for frying
1/2 cup water
1 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup distilled white vinegar
1/4 cup cornstarch
1 cup white sugar
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons sesame oil
1 teaspoon red chile paste
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds

Combine the 2 tablespoons soy sauce, chicken broth, dash of sesame oil, flour, 2 tablespoons cornstarch, 2 tablespoons water, baking powder, baking soda, and canola oil in a large bowl. Mix well; stir in the chicken. Cover and refrigerate for 20 minutes.

Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
Combine the 1/2 cup water, chicken broth, vinegar, 1/4 cup cornstarch, sugar, 2 tablespoons soy sauce, 2 tablespoons sesame oil, red chili paste, and garlic in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Turn heat to low and keep warm, stirring occasionally.
Fry the marinated chicken in batches until cooked through and golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Drain on paper towels.
Transfer the chicken to a large platter, top with sauce, and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Serve over rice!
