Sesame Cilantro Chicken for Two

Slightly sweet, super juicy and drizzled with a wonderfully Asian-inspired sauce, this chicken is definitely delicious enough to serve to a guest. Wild rice would make an easy side. —Brittany Bowen, Flagstaff, Arizona

    The chicken turned out very moist and good. I did not use the sesame seeds.
