A family favorite, and light to boot! I have calc'd each serving to be 6 WW points. Credit given to Mary Baker, posted in Cooking Light magazine.

We loved the flavour, but I had a little trouble keeping the coat on, when I went to turn them over while cooking, some fell off. I wanted chicken for a picnic finger food, so I too cut the chicken breasts in strips. Actually worked very well, and I will make them again, good picnic chicken! Thanks for posting, lovely combination of spices with the nuttiness of the sesame seed.
