Expert Tips

To toast sesame seed, heat in ungreased skillet over medium heat about 2 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown.

To retain the juices, turn chicken with tongs instead of piercing it with a fork.

For a really easy meal, add warm egg rolls and an Asian salad from the deli. Any flavor of sherbet would be the perfect refreshing dessert.
