Absolutely gorgeous!!! I loved the sesame crusted chicken it was different yet so flavourful and that sauce was just outstanding.. I served ours over an Asian inspired couscous and it was a perfect dinner.. It is one that has been saved as a favourite and we will be enjoying this one many times over.. That sauce is to die for, I live in Spain at the moment and can not get Mirin anywhere or Sake that I was hoping to substitute it with and add some sugar, so I had to use sherry which I blended sugar with to create a somewhat of a mirin with. I have cooked with mirin extensively before and although I know there really is no real substitute I feel that this came close and did not detract from the recipe too much.. Although I will look forward to trying it again with the mirin.. A truly yummy recipe and totally outstanding Sharon.. A real winner for us and thanks so much for sharing!!!

I enjoyed this one so much; the flavors were wonderful. I usually go with recipes with more reviews, but this recipes just looked well constructed. So I went ahead and tried it, and had no regrets.

DH and I made this for dinner the other night. We thought it was good and was fast and easy to make. Followed all directions as posted. Served with Chia's Ginger Sesame Asparagus, which was very complimentary as a side. Thanks, Sharon.

The sesame coating is a stroke of genius. My only changes were to double the chili flakes and cut the chicken breasts in half length-wise through the thick part, so they would cook more quickly. We had a lot of the yummy sauce leftover, so I have refrigerated it for when I repeat this dish -- which will be soon. Roxygirl is right. This is a great recipe for entertaining.

This could have been a disaster. But... it's such a great recipe that even with my stove 'blowing up' mid way it still worked. I'd just finished pan frying when my whole cooker died (oven, cooktop & grill) so I finished the whole thing in the microwave. It still worked fantastically well. I loved the flavour of the sauce. Thanks Sharon.

Since my family loves Asian food, I was anxious to try this. I really loved the sesame seed coating (it is different from a traditional bread crumbs), since it provides a big crunch. I did substitute white wine for the mirin, (never have had mirin so don't know if it changed the flavor) but was good. It tasted a bit "thai" because of the basil.This would be a good dish to entertain with. Roxygirl
