Sesame Chicken

This is a quick but unusual recipe for chicken. Sesame seeds really dress up the chicken and add both taste and texture. The chicken is served in juicy strips.

We heat the oil in a large frying pan. On a piece of wax paper, we dump the sesame seeds and mix in some salt and pepper. Using tongs, we coat both sides of each piece of chicken and reserve on a plate. When the oil is hot, we gently place the chicken into the frying pan with the tongs. We wash the tongs and disinfect the raw chicken prep area.

The chicken splatters a lot, so be careful! We fry for about 5 minutes on the first side, turn over, and continue to fry for another 5 minutes or so (depending on size of chicken). We want the chicken to be cooked through, yet juicy, and the sesame seeds browned.

We let the chicken rest for a few minutes on a clean paper towel-lined plate and then slice into thin strips.
