Sesame seed coated chicken

Sesame seed chicken

Sesame seeds are one of nature’s superfoods. They are an easy, cheap way of adding protein and a delicious nutty flavour to different dishes. Here they add a tasty new dimension to chicken wings. It is a great family recipe as it is healthy and budget friendly. It is also the  perfect finger food for parties.

The best thing about this recipe is that it is very quick to prepare as you need very few ingredients and no precise 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 the knife 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 the seeds.
