At Wegman's last week, I ran in to friend and blog contributor, Chris S., and asked her about her Sesame Chicken recipe which I ran across when I was looking for the Asian BBQ Chicken recipe I recently posted.
Is it a good recipe? I couldn't remember it. She said "yes!"
"Plus I remember when I first made it. It was for a fund-raiser at Corning Museum of Glass in the old auditorium and we played Twister!"
(She also said to be sure to marinate it for a long time.)
"Twister" Grilled Sesame Chicken from Chris
So, I decided to make it. We've had it twice last week. Unfortunately, we burnt it the first time.
It was a little salty for our taste so I left out the salt the second time. The sesame oil and the sesame seeds are the dominate flavor ---which I really like.
Love how simple this recipe is. The meat was very moist, too.
