Sauce for Sesame Chicken
1/2 cup water

2 tablespoons dark soy sauce
2 tablespoons sesame oil
1 teaspoon chili paste, or more if desired
1 clove garlic (minced)

Toast the sesame seeds and set aside.
Cut the chicken into 1-inch cubes. Mix the marinade ingredients and marinate the chicken for 20 minutes.
For Sauce: Mix together all of the sauce ingredients. Pour them into a small pot and bring to a boil, stirring continuously. Turn the heat down to low and keep warm while you are deep-frying the chicken.

Just before you are finished deep-frying, bring the sauce back up to a boil.
