Demented Ramblings life is too short to refrain from eating jam out of the jar


from the vaults

There was previously a recipe linked here that I loved and the website died. Sadness, I'd lost my recipe! And so many other yummy things, lost to the aether.

I did some digging around, because I was craving it and found something close. I actually combined a couple of recipes to get here. I won't be silly enough to link them again, I'll just post the recipe.

Sesame chicken bites

  • 2 pounds chicken breast, cut into bite sized pieces
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons ground mustard
  • 2 teaspoons dried minced onion
  • 1 cup (*) panko
  • 1/2 cup (*) sesame seeds
  • olive oil
  • salt to taste

Preheat oven to 425F.

Mix mayonnaise with dry mustard and minced onion. Mix this with the chicken pieces.

In another bowl, mix panko and sesame seeds. Toss coated chicken pieces in the dry mix, a few at a time and put onto a foil lined pan. When all the chicken is coated, drizzle with a little olive oil and sprinkle with salt.

Bake 15-20 minutes.

* I have never used just 1 1/2 cups of the dry mixture, I've always had to mix up more. Maybe I really pack it on the chicken bites. Also, I think it depends on how small you cut your chicken. My pieces are always pretty small, like popcorn chicken.

We like to serve this with au gratin potatoes, something cheesy so you can dip the chicken in the cheese sauce.
