Recipe: Sesame Chicken

Here's the recipe for Sesame Chicken that's not quite as fattening as your favorite Chinese restaurant. If I calculated correctly, it's approximately 5-6 points.

Makes 4 servings.

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts halves
  • 3 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Coat 2-qt baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  3. Place EVOO and sesame seeds in bowl. Microwave for 1-2 minutes (until slightly brown).
  4. Place soy sauce in separate bowl. Add chicken, coating it in soy sauce. Discard remaining soy sauce.
  5. In resealable plastic bag, add sesame seeds, salt & pepper. Shake to mix.
  6. Add chicken to plastic bag and shake to coat.
  7. Place chicken in prepared 2-qt baking dish.
  8. Bake 20-25 minutes
  9. Remove from oven, serve.
