SESAME CHICKEN

 

  • Cooking Time: 45
  • Servings: 4
  • Preparation Time:

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup toasted sesame seeds
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 pinch ground black pepper
  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (I cut mine into strips)
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted (I used fat free Parkay spray)
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes (I added this to the recipe)

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  • Place soy sauce in a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  • On a piece of wax paper (I used a bowl), mix together the sesame seeds, flour, salt and pepper (and red pepper flakes).
  • Dip the chicken pieces in the soy sauce to coat, then dredge in the sesame seed mixture.
  • Place in medium/hot pan on stove top and flip after a minute or two, add a little butter and soy sauce to keep the chicken moist.
  • Remove and arrange in baking dish in a single layer, then drizzle with melted butter and some more soy sauce.
  • Bake at 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) for approximately 40 minutes (mine took about 20 minutes because it was pre-cooked on the stove and cut into strips), or until chicken is cooked through and tender and juices run clear.
  • Baste with drippings once during cooking time.
  • Garnish with extra sesame seeds if desired, and serve.
