Baked Sesame Chicken

I found this recipe on the lovely Alanna’s blog and it looked really delish. I was in the mood for something different with chicken, so I tried it out. It was SO GOOD! I loved it…lil spicy for hubs, but we’ll fix that next time. Definitely a keeper.

I do not feel like typing the recipe for this right now, so click that link if you want it. 🙂
