A lovely way to prepare chicken pieces. My original recipe inspired by Asian cuisine.

Recipe Ingredients for Sesame Ginger Chicken

8 chicken thighs
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 tsp tahini
1 tsp garlic , minced
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp sesame seeds

Recipe Directions for Sesame Ginger Chicken

  1. In a large pan, mix everything but the chicken.

  2. A 13X9, deep cake pan works well for this.

  3. Make sure the tahini is well mixed to get both the solids and the oils.

  4. Start heating the oven to 350 F.

  5. Rinse and squeeze chicken dry and then place in sauce, evenly coating each piece. Leave them skin side up if they have skin.

  6. Bake for about an hour.

  7. NOTES: Other chicken pieces can be used, but that will vary the caloric content. Other pieces (less fatty than thighs) may require you to add a little water halfway through cooking. Skinless chicken can also be used, of course.
