Sesame seed chicken

Sesame seed chicken

Sesame seeds are one of nature’s superfoods and are packed full of protein. They are an easy, cheap way of adding nutritious flavour to dishes. I recently added some to cabbage,  slicing it into fine strips before stir frying it with the seeds and a dash of soya sauce. The seeds added a lovely nutty taste.

Today’s recipe is another way of including these healthy seeds into your diet. Chicken wings are  inexpensive and more nutritious if cooked this way. Much better for kids than chicken nuggets and they also make great party food. The pic above was taken at a recent get together with some friends.

The best thing about this recipe is that you need very few ingredients and no measuring is required. The bit that takes the longest is removing the skin from the chicken wings. My advice is to use a small sharp knife as this will make it easier. Avoid accidents by holding the chicken firmly as you slide the knife between the skin and flesh moving away rather than towards your body.

If you’re unable to get hold of wings, you could also use drum sticks or chicken breasts cut into strips before coating with seeds.
