Four-Ingredient Sesame Chicken

Crispy, crunchy and fun to eat, these sesame chicken breasts are a breeze to make, and a great substitution for traditional breaded tenders or nuggets. Kids love them dipped in honey, while adults can slice them up over greens or enjoy them alongside rice. They’re great re-heated for a quick lunch the next day, too. Enjoy!
