  • “This is my family”s favorite!UPDATE: Although I have commented already, I might add that I have used frozen boneless skinless chicken breasts in this recipe andcooked about 50 minutes at 400 degrees.I also cut back on fat by drizzling carefully 1 teaspoon of butter or margarine on top of each chicken breast.”

  • “Thought this was very good and fairly simple to prepare. I used chicken breasts and thighs since DH likes dark meat and both were juicy and flavorful.”

  • “Very simple to prepare and so delicious!It really has a crispiness on the outside and such moist chicken inside!”

  • “We really enjoyed this savory dish.The chicken was perfectly cooked and was moist, juicy and very tender.The flavor was excellent, love the crunch from the sesames. I drizzled with a little olive oil. Thanks for sharing this winner.Made for Diabetic Tailgate party.”

  • “My family loved this. I used deboned chicken thighs as we prefer dark meat.I only needed to cook for 25 minutes. I also used a spritzer with olive oil instead of drizzling. Delicious!”

  • “Very easy to prepare. I used drumsticks. Crisped up nicely.Leftovers the next day were great tooLeah”

  • “Quick and delicious.I use boneless chicken cut into strips and bake them for 20-25 minutes.”

  • “This is similiar to a recipe I received from a friend, Melissa Henao.Her recipe uses 2 T. soy sauce, 1/4 cup toasted sesame seeds, 2 T. flour, 4 boneless skinless breast halves, 2 T. butter.I usually cut my chicken into strips and serve with honey mustard dipping sauce.My family and I enjoy it very much!Thanks for posting :)”

  • “This was good and easy. I didn’t have the full 6 tablespoons of sesame seeds but it didn’t matter. I wanted to cut the fat down a bit so instead of the drizzle bit, I gave each piece a quick shot of cooking spray. IMO, you should try it without the skin. We liked this chicken and will make it again. Thanks, Mirj.”

  • “Finally got around to trying this and glad I did.I usually do not keep the skin on chicken but I think this dish needs the skin on it.It was excellent.Moist and tender with a nice sesame crunch.Thanks Mirjam.”
