    Manami's Note:

    Here, the editors chose to feature a Chinese-inspired stuffed chicken breast, incorporating short-grain rice, like arborio -- which allows the stuffing to stay put. The five "jewels" of the stuffing are the rice itself, almonds, water chestnuts, scallions & garlic -- none of which requires a trip to a specialty market.;) Garnishing with sesame seeds is entirely optional (white and black) however, it makes a beautiful presence.
