Sesame Teriyaki Chicken Recipe

Sesame Teriyaki Chicken Recipe

When my granddaughter, Alicia Fie, married James Reeves, our family served this flavorful chicken over rice. It requires very little last-minute fuss.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + marinating Bake: 20 min. YIELD:24 servings


  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 3/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup chili sauce
  • 3 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • 3 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 3/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 24 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (about 6 ounces each)
  • Toasted sesame seeds


  • 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.

Recipe Note

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!"
