This was very easy, and very yummy! I didn't have the sesame seeds, but the sesame oil adds such a strong flavor that I (don't think) I missed them. I popped these on the grill (without skewers, though, I just laid them out) after the chicken was finished cooking and by the time I had everything else plated up, they were ready to eat. Definitely a keeper!
