Sesame Seed Chicken (A Turkish Meze)

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by threeovens

An appetizer in which chicken wing drummettes are rolled in a mixture of sesame seeds and seasoned bread crumbs, then roasted until golden and crispy. This is sort of a party dish, or meze (think Spanish Tapas).

We really enjoyed the chicken prepared this way. I soaked the wings in the milk for 8 hours and I used a mixture of black and toasted sesames. They worked great in this dish. The chicken was very flavor and well cooked. Thanks for sharing a recipe we will enjoy again. Made for CQ4 - Turkey
