Grilled Spicy Asian Sesame Chicken

Nor M.


I have made this manty times for my family. It has a little kick. It is Easy,flavorful, and grilled. I love Asian food. This is a very easy tasty recipe, and the best part is that it is lower in fat. The skin is removed which helps to absorb all of the yummy sauce. Enjoy!
