I am always on the look out for new chicken breast recipes that are unique and tasty. This one fits the bill! They’re coated in a mixture of sesame, panko, and a little soy sauce, which forms a nice crispy exterior. These are perfect for a busy weeknight meal and don’t take much time to throw together. Just put some rice in the cooker, make a salad, and serve with these delicious chicken tenders!
I also want to try this with chicken thighs or salmon!
-1 Pound Chicken Breast Tenders
-2 teaspoons Sesame Oil (or Olive Oil)
-2 teaspoons Low Sodium Soy Sauce
-1/4 Cup Toasted Sesame Seeds
-6 Tablespoons Panko
-Black Pepper, to taste
-Olive Oil, for baking sheet
Preheat oven to 425F. Lightly coat a baking sheet in olive oil, or use non-stick spray.
In a small bowl, whisk together sesame oil and soy sauce. In another bowl, combine panko, sesame seeds, and black pepper. Dip chicken into the soy mixture, and then coat it in the panko mixture. Place on the baking sheet and cook for 8-10 minutes. Take out of the oven, turn over, and cook for another 4-5 minutes, until done.
