  • 1
    Heat gas or charcoal grill. Between pieces of plastic wrap or waxed paper, place each chicken breast smooth side down; gently pound with flat side of meat mallet or rolling pin until 1/2 inch thick.
  • 2
    In small bowl, stir orange peel into teriyaki glaze. Reserve 2 tablespoons glaze mixture for serving. Brush both sides of chicken with remaining glaze mixture. Sprinkle sesame seed over both sides of chicken; cover chicken with piece of waxed paper and lightly press seed into chicken.
  • 3
    Place chicken on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 6 to 8 minutes, turning once, until chicken is no longer pink in center. Remove chicken from grill to serving plate. Spoon reserved 2 tablespoons glaze over chicken. Sprinkle with onions.
  • To toast sesame seed, sprinkle in ungreased heavy skillet. Cook over medium-low heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently until browning begins, then stirring constantly until golden brown. Remove immediately from hot skillet so seed doesn’t continue to toast and become too dark or scorched.

Expert Tips

  • Serve with cooked rice or Asian peanut noddles and steamed carrots.
