"Twister" Grilled Sesame Chicken from Chris

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.)

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.
