In this video, Betty demonstrates how to make her Sensational Sesame Chicken. Chicken tenders are marinated in a mixture of soy sauce, sesame oil, ginger, green onions, and garlic. Then, sesame seeds are mixed with the drained chicken, and it is broiled to tender perfection!


Chicken tenders 2 Pound , uncooked
Soy sauce 1/2 Cup (8 tbs)
Sesame oil 2 Tablespoon
Ground ginger 1 Teaspoon
Green onions 3 , sliced
Garlic 2 Clove (10 gm) , minced
Sesame seeds 2 Tablespoon , toasted


In a small bowl, combine ½ cup soy sauce, 2 tablespoons sesame oil, 1 teaspoon ground ginger, 3 sliced green onions, and 2 cloves minced garlic. Place 1 to 2 pounds of chicken tenders in a heavy-duty, gallon-sized zip-lock bag. Pour the marinade over the chicken and seal the bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for 1 hour. Drain the marinade from the chicken and discard. Sprinkle the marinated chicken with 2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds. Place the individual chicken tenders on a broiler pan and broil 5 ½ inches from heat—with the oven door partially open. Broil for 3 minutes, and then turn each piece of chicken and broil for 3 minutes longer, or until done. Serve immediately. I served my Sensational Sesame Chicken with my Basic Sweet and Sour Sauce, my Tasty Tarragon Fettucini, and steamed green peas. This makes a delicious and healthy meal—plus, it is nice and light for the summer! I hope you like it! --Betty
