Sesame Chicken with Mustard Sauce

 Sesame Chicken with Mustard Sauce
For variety, you can make a cracker-crumb coating for my chicken...substitute turkey for chicken...or grill it instead of baking it. I've even served the chicken in strips with a sauce so it becomes a fun finger food for dipping. -Wanda White, Antioch, Tennessee
