Sesame Cilantro Chicken Recipe

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

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