      Way easier to do than it seems. Basically just marinated chicken wrapped up in pastry and baked. Very tasty, very easy and very impressive looking. Step 7 is important: -- letting the marinade drip off. The pastry doesn't get soggy that way. It was also important to toast the sesame seeds first too. We just ate this with a spinach salad. Delicious.

      The presentation of this is beautiful! Everyone was oohing- and aahing when I brought it to the table. The best part of this recipe is probably the marinade which I am going to use again for different dishes- the chicken was so flavourful. I served it with a broccoli casserole and lemon roasted potatoes. Thanks Mean Chef for another great recipe.
