Baked Honey Sesame Chicken

Baked Honey Sesame Chicken

It's definitely nice to bring variety in cooking and try recipes that are not in the traditional area, like this Chinese honey sesame chicken recipe that I've seen over Pinterest and since then I've been craving to try it too.

 

I thought it will be a difficult recipe, that will take me a lot of time. I was actually surprised of how quickly and easy it is to prepare this delicious chicken. You can make this recipe with either chicken or turkey breast, will be as good.

 

All you have to do is to let the chicken bake in the oven for about 30 minutes, meanwhile prepare everything you need for the sauce and prepare it. The sauce is done in a matter of minutes, pour it over the chicken and it's done. The flavor is amazing. The toasted sesame seeds with the sweet and sour sauce complements very well the chicken. Serve it over rice and the lunch or dinner is done in less than an hour.


Give it a try, you will love it.
