Sesame Chicken

This is a recipe from Emily S. (reliefsocietycookers.blogspot.com). It takes at least an hour of planning time because it has to marinate. My kids and husbands really enjoyed this recipe. We will have this again.

3 or 4 chicken breasts

2 Tablespoons oil

1/4 cup sesame seeds

1/4 cup soy sauce

2 Tablespoons brown sugar

3/4 teaspoon ground ginger

2 cloves chopped garlic

Cut chicken into cubes or sometimes I do strips. In a large frying pan, combine sesame seeds and oil. Cook over medium low heat, stirring occasionally, just until seeds are golden (about 2 minutes). Let cool. In another bowl, combine soy sauce, sugar, ginger and garlic. When sesame seeds have cooled, add them to the bowl. Mix in chicken. Cover and chill for 1-4 hours.

Arrange meat with all of the marinade in a single layer in a 9 x 13 pan. Broil about 6 inches from the heat, until golden, about 10 minutes. Turn pieces over and continue cooking until chicken is no longer pink, about 5 minutes longer. Serve over rice!
