Sesame Chicken

This chicken dish is another simple one, like most people I really don’t have the time to fiddle around with something; by the end of the day we are all tired, starving and ready to just eat and relax as a family. What actually takes me the longest with my recipes is now the fact that I take pictures as I go, not the actual food preparation itself!

Ingredients needed:

Chicken chopped into 8 pieces

1/2 cup of soda cracker crumbs

1/2 cup bread crumbs (or just use one whole cup of cracker crumbs if wanted)

1/2 cup of sesame seeds

1/2 tsp paprika

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp pepper

1 egg

1/2 cup of milk

Kick the tires and light the fires to 375 degrees.

And the usual picture of the ingredients…

I love sesame seeds, sesame oil and sesame snaps. Am I the only one who thinks those sugar glazed little bars of happy are the best? Nothing like corn syrup and sesame seeds melded together in a wafer. Mmmmm.

The seeds need to be toasted, so spread them out on an ungreased baking sheet.

I can’t help it, it’s the kid in me.

And then my actual kid saw what I did, and an art activity was born. So here’s a 2 for 1 deal, you get not only a recipe, but a children’s craft idea as well. No need to thank me, just doing my job.

After you toasted them in the oven to a nice golden brown, remove them and get ready to tackle the next part.

Paprika is also a favorite of mine, mild, tasty, and in so many recipes it’s a staple in any cooks cupboard.

Put all your ingredients together in a large plastic bag, or a deep dish big enough to coat chicken pieces in. This includes your lovely toasted sesame seeds.

Crack the egg into a bowl.

Add your milk.

Then line up the bowl, plastic and a greased baking sheet like so:

Dip your chicken pieces into the egg…

..then give ‘em a shake in the plastic bag to coat them thoroughly…

…and place them all on the baking sheet. Bake for 35-45 minutes, or until the chicken is done
