This was a certified winner around the dinner table tonight. My 8 year old couldn't stop eating this chicken! We all loved it. I increased the ingredients to serve 4. Next time I will save out a bit of the teriyaki mixture to paint on the chicken just before serving. It will add moisture and the sesame seeds will adhere better. We will gladly be eating this dish many more times! Served with lemon-parslied potatoes.
