Baked Sesame Chicken

2 T Soy Sauce
2 T All Purpose flour
1 pinch black pepper
2 T butter
1/4 cup toasted sesame seeds
1/4 tsp salt
4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Put soy sauce in 9x13 baking dish, glass is preferable. In a large flat bottomed bowl or pan, mix together sesame seeds, flour, salt and pepper. Dip chicken pieces in soy sauce then into the seed mixture, coating them well. Arrange in glass baking dish in a single layer, drizzle with melted butter.

Bake for about 40 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and tender. Juices will run clear. Baste with drippings once during cooking time. Garnish with extra sesame seeds if desired.

To toast sesame seeds, place in baking dish in hot over for about 5 - 10 min or until brown. Be careful to watch this as they can burn quickly.

To make slightly sweet, drizzle with a honey / butter mixture of equal parts butter and honey before baking.

Pyrex 3-qt. Rectangular Baking Dish

With all the high-tech equipment in the marketplace these days, it's easy to overlook something that's been around for decades (actually since 1919)--Pyrex. Originally called "fire glass" because it could withstand heat, Pyrex has proven to be an excellent material for bakeware--especially for fruit desserts like cobblers and crisps, quick breads and bar cookies. This 3-quart oblong pan measures 13" by 9" by 2". Although not technically nonstick, few things stick to Pyrex and those that do clean away quickly and easily after the pan has been soaked in hot water. Material: Glass Size/Capacity: 3-qt. Dimensions: 9 x 13 x 2-in. Origin: USA Cleaning & Care: Dishwasher-, microwave-, frezzer-safe. Warranty: 2-year Special Features: Oven-safe to 400 degrees.
