Sesame seeds on oven-fried chicken? Crispy chicken without a grease-filled iron skillet?
This recipe got my attention, when I saw it in my America’s Best Recipes cookbook, and I had to try it! The recipe includes grated Parmesan cheese and dry breadcrumbs, along with sesame seeds for the breading. Use skinless chicken and it’s even healthier.
I can tell you this chicken ROCKED! It turned out very crispy and juicy and smacked of good flavors. Just try it --- I bet you will think so also!
Crispy Sesame Chicken
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
½ cup fine, dry breadcrumbs
¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
1 teaspoon pepper
1 (3 to 3½-pound) fryer chicken, cut up, skinless
¼ cup butter, melted
Combine first 3 ingredients in a small bowl and stir well.
Dip chicken in butter.
Dredge in breadcrumb mixture.
Place in a 13 x 9-inch baking dish.
Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour or until done.
Yum! Tender and crispy too!
