Deliciously addicting these baked Sesame Seed Chicken Strips are! Perfect with a sweet & tangy honey dipping sauce. Great as an appetizer or even as the main for dinner with sides. The crispy crust is nutty& hard to resist!
What to get:
  • 1 package chicken breasts (~4 boneless/skinless), cut into strips (~1lb chicken)
  • ½ cup sesame seeds
  • 2 cups dry bread crumbs, plain or seasoned
  • ⅔ cup flour, for dredging chicken
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten for egg wash
  • ½ cup melted butter
  • S&P, to taste
For dipping sauce:
  • 1T prepared Sweet & Sour sauce
  • 1T honey
  • ½ T prepared, coarse ground dijon mustard
  • ¼ tsp fresh orange zest
  • pinch of salt
What to do:
  1. Rinse chicken breast, pat dry & season lightly with salt & pepper.
  2. Cut chicken breasts into small-medium sized strips.
  3. in a shallow bowl combine sesame seeds and bread crumbs.
  4. Lightly coat each strip in flour, dip into egg wash, then into bread crumb/sesame mix.
  5. Place in a single layer on a greased & rimmed baking sheet.
  6. Pour melted butter evenly on top of layer of strips, bake in 350 degree oven until crispy and cooked through (~25 - 35 minutes depending on how large you decide to cut strips).
  7. Cool on rack for 2 minutes.
While chicken bakes, make dipping sauce:
  1. In small mixing bowl combine 1 T store-bought Sweet & Sour, 1 T honey, ½ T mustard, ¼ tsp orange zest and pinch salt.
  2. Whisk ingredients combing well.
  3. Double ingredients if you require more sauce and add more mustard and salt to taste.
Notes:
I prefer to cut my chicken strips a little smaller, so there is more crispy crust, but this works great with larger pieces for a meal. These freeze well too once out of oven, cool then freeze. To reheat frozen, bake in oven for ~5-8 minutes depending on size.
Serving size: couple of strips
