When my granddaughter, Alicia Fie, married James Reeves, our family served this flavorful chicken over rice. It requires very little last-minute fuss.

  1. In a large bowl, combine the first nine ingredients. Pour 3/4 cup marinade into each of three large resealable plastic bags. Add eight chicken breasts to each bag; seal bags and turn to coat. Refrigerate for 6 hours or overnight, turning once.
  2. Discard marinade. Transfer to two greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pans. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 10-13 minutes on each side or until chicken juices run clear.
  3. To grill, cook, uncovered, over medium heat for 5-7 minutes on each side or until chicken juices run clear. Sprinkle with sesame seeds before serving. Yield: 24 servings.
Tip: Keep chicken hot in an electric roaster set on low. A bit of beef broth will keep the meat moist.

"I make a smaller version of this recipe quite often and use my george forman to cook the chicken breasts and then cut up the meat to top off a garden salad. Even my three boys love it!"
