This is another new recipe that i'm trying out. I'm always looking for new ways to eat chicken. I was really happy with how crispy these were and how easy they were to make.
There is a really big taste of sesame in these. I know how obvious that sounds but for me it went from 0 to 60 within a couple of bites. Next go around I might leave out the sesame oil and just stick with the sesame seeds but test it out for your self and decide how much sesame taste you love.
Sesame Encrusted Baked Chicken Tenders:
(skinny taste- 5pp+, 4 1/2 servings)
18 oz chicken tenderloins
salt and pepper to taste
2 teaspoons sesame oil
2 teaspoons low sodium soy sauce
6 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds
1/2 teaspoon course salt
4 tablespoons panko bread crumbs
olive oil spray
Preheat oven to 425°. Spray a baking sheet with non-stick oil spray.
Combine the sesame oil and soy sauce in a bowl, and the sesame seeds, salt and panko in another.
Place chicken in the bowl with the oil and soy sauce, then into the sesame seed mixture to coat well. Place on the baking sheet; lightly spray the top of the chicken with oil spray and bake 8 - 10 minutes. Turn over and cook another 4 - 5 minutes longer or until cooked through.
