  1. This was a lovely, quick and easy recipe, dinner was on the table in no time. Made as written, the only thing was that I used dark soya sauce, it was what I had on hand. The chicken didn't look so pretty, but it tasted great. Thanks for sharing your recipe. Made for Spring Pac 2012.
  2. I used 3 half bonesless skinless breasts which weighed about 240 grams each but followed with full recipe and baked in a shallow edged baking dish but would recommend a flat dish as I think you would get better browning as the sides of the baking dish protect it from browning and also I would consider toasting the sesame seeds to bring their flavour out more and add to the appearance (look browner), as was for the last 10 minutes I gave a light spray with cooking oil which took the white look away and added a tinge of colour. Thank you Parvulus, made for I Recommend and recommended by ElaineAnn.
