Sesame Cilantro Chicken

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

    We all enjoyed it. Gets to be pretty sweet if you take a lot of sauce from the pan to spoon on top of the chicken.

    I doubt I will make this again, but if I do I will omit the cilantro.
