    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

    Sorry to see we had a few drams but all turned out well. Read recipe in the morning oh oops got busy and marinating wings (just over 2lb) int he milk. Had intentions of doubling the crumbing mix but when I came to make found I only had 1/2 cup of sesame seeds so just added 1/2 cup of bread crumbs with 3/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper and had just enough mix to coat the cut up wings (didn't use the tips and had 10 wings) and baked as directed for 50 minutes (175C fan forced oven) and the result was moist tender wings/drumettes with a slight bite of heat, absolutely delicious and had you licking your fingers and lips, a big thank you threeovens, made for Aussie/Kiwi Recipe Swap #69 October 2012.
