Honey Sesame Dump Chicken - OAMC

"The theory is you dump this in a bag and freeze to pull out later. There are many variations which I will post separately but it's amazingly easy to make these up and have a different "dump" chicken every week!"

    Made using bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs. Cooked that day (not OAMC) and chicken was very tender and had a delicious sauce to spoon over brown rice. Nice dinner.

    I too got this recipe from another site, then after I mixed it I thought it seemed odd. So I came here and read the reviews. So I doctored it up a bit... Added 1 tbls of Hoisen Sauce and cooked as directed. When the chicken was done I removed it from the thin sauce and browned it. Then deglazed the pan with white wine and added the sauce to thicken it. Added a bit of soy sauce, and it turned out great. My husband loved it. I thought the sesame seeds made it a bit bitter. Next time I would toast them first.

    This was lightly flavored when used as oamc


I live in Las Vegas. I was lucky enough to run into Recipezaar around Nov. 2000 and got hooked quickly. I am a cookbook collector and have been collecting recipes for as long as I can remember. My DH had to build in shelves for all my cookbooks! I like to dabble with OAMC and for a few years hosted the Budget/OAMC forum with some great people over there. Even though I don't work in the forum any longer I've set up a lot of cookbooks for the purpose of OAMC and stretching food that might be helpful. Please feel free to check them out! I go on food jags and cooking jags! Please come say hi to me and chat on facebook. I currently host a blog for saving money through finding deals and coupons if you are interested. Most of the time I try to cook and have a good dinner on the table but I'll be honest enough to say there is still fast food occasionally in the budget! I have had such wonderful support here whenever I need it. Thank you all for being here! Just a quick note on how I rate recipes: ? 5 stars - This recipe is perfect. (My DH is truly a critic and doesn't give 5's unless it's amazing) I would recommend it to others and would definitely make again. ? 4 stars - This recipe was good but I would change something in it next time. ? 3 stars - This is a recipe I would not make again but it was OK ? 2 stars - This recipe I would not make again and we didn't like it at all ? 1 star - This recipes did not work out/taste was unappealing and wouldn't make again
