This isn't the same sesame chicken you're used to. Instead of being fried, this version is baked, with crisp, juicy results. Make with chicken legs or thighs, too, if you like, and serve with steamed brown rice and a green salad topped with sesame dressing.
Ingredients: 
  • 1 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves

Method: 
Preheat the oven to 400°F. In a wide, shallow dish stir together bread crumbs, sesame seeds, paprika, salt and pepper. Put butter into a second shallow dish. Dip chicken in butter, then roll in bread crumb mixture and transfer to a lightly oiled baking sheet, arranging pieces so they don't touch. Use two baking sheets, if needed. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until the juices in the meat run clear when checked with a knife. Transfer chicken to plates and serve.
