Sesame Cilantro Chicken

Recipe taken from:
Healthy Cooking, Taste of home

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (6oz each)
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2 Tbsp. reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/8 tps. ground ginger
  • 1 Tbsp. minced fresh cilantro
  • 1 Tbsp. sesame seeds, toasted


Place chicken in 11x7 inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Combine the honey, soy sauce, garlic powder, ginger and cilantro. Spoon 1/4 cup honey mixture over chicken. Set aside the remaining mixture.

Cover and bake at 375 degrees for 40 minutes. Uncover, bake for 20 minutes longer or until a meat thermometer reads 17o degrees. Spoon reserved mixture over chicken; sprinkles with sesame seeds.

Notes & Tips:

This recipe was ok. I liked the flavor but the original recipe called for baking the chicken for 20 mins. WHICH is WAYYY too short. You'll end up with raw chicken that way. I served this with couscous and a salad.
