Is sesame chicken sweet or spicy?

Before we dive into the recipe, let’s clarify what sesame chicken is. Many people assume that it’s a sweet dish, but it can also be spicy.

The sweetness comes from a sugar-based sauce, often flavored with honey, and the heat comes from chili flakes or hot sauce. For our sesame garlic wings, we’ll keep them mild but feel free to add some spice if you’re feeling bold.

Is sesame chicken the same as teriyaki chicken?

Now you may be wondering if sesame chicken is the same as teriyaki chicken. While both dishes originate from Asia, they have distinct differences.

Teriyaki chicken includes a soy sauce-based glaze, while sesame chicken traditionally has a sweet and savory sauce made with sesame oil, soy sauce, and sugar.

So, if you like teriyaki chicken, you may not necessarily love sesame chicken, and vice versa. However, both are delicious in their own way.

Prep Time: 10minutes mins
Cook Time: 15minutes mins
Release Time: 5minutes mins
Servings: 6
Equipment :Instant Pot


  • 4.5 lbs Chicken wings
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1 Cup Water
  • White sesame seeds for garnish
  • ¼ Cup Coconut aminos
  • 2 Tbsp Sesame oil
  • 3 Tbsp Honey
  • 1 Tbsp Unsalted butter
  • 2 Tsp Fresh ginger very finely minced
  • 1 Tsp Garlic powder


  1. Season wings with salt and black pepper, to taste. Place metal trivet inside Instant Pot® and add one cup of water. Arrange seasoned wings on top of the trivet before securing the cover in place. Switch the vent to “Sealing” and set the “Manual” setting to 8 minutes.
  2. To prepare the sesame garlic sauce, heat the coconut aminos, sesame oil, honey, butter, ginger, and garlic powder in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring frequently, until butter is melted and the mixture is thoroughly combined. Remove from heat and set aside.
  3. When cook time on Instant Pot® is complete, allow pressure to naturally release for 10 minutes, then do a quick release for any remaining steam. Remove lid and transfer wings to a large bowl. Set aside and cool slightly.
  4. Meanwhile, position top oven rack in the top position and pre-heat broiler to high. Line a large, rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil and place a wire cooling rack on top. Set aside.
  5. Pour 1/3 of the sesame garlic sauce on top of the wings and toss to coat. Transfer the wings to the wire rack on the prepared baking sheet and place under the broiler for 3-4 minutes or until the wings start to get crispy and develop some color. Turn the wings and repeat on the remaining side.
  6. Remove from oven and toss the wings with half of the remaining sesame garlic sauce. Sprinkle with white sesame seeds and serve immediately with the remaining sauce on the side. Enjoy!
