Simple Sesame Ginger Chicken

Total Time

This is a quick way to flavor chicken; because it's thick, you can baste instead of having to marinate. I suggested a couple of different ways to prepare this.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Blend the soy sauce, honey, sesame seeds, and ginger well.
  2. Baste the chicken breasts and broil or grill 5-8 minutes on each side, brushing frequently with sauce.
  3. Alternately, cube the chicken and baste/marinate in the sauce, then fry in very hot oil and serve with vegetables over rice as a stir-fry.

Fabulous! I made this for dinner tonight and we all loved it. I did add some green onions, garlic, peppers and a bit of crushed red pepper flakes. This is very close to what you get in Chinese restaurants.

The sauce didn't have as much sesame flavor as I would have liked and on the grill it burned and turned black and not so tasty. Next time I think I would try adding some garlic and red pepper flakes to give it a bit more flavor.
