How to Make Lemon Sesame Chicken

Step-by-Step

  1. Between pieces of plastic wrap or waxed paper, place each chicken smooth side down; gently pound with flat side of mallet or rolling pin until about 1/4 inch thick. (I usually cut each piece of chicken in half crosswise to make it even thinner)
  2. In a small bowl, beat egg and 2 Tbsp lemon juice with fork or wire whisk. In a 1-gallon resealable food storage plastic bag, mix Bisquick mix, paprika and sesame seeds.
  3. Dip chicken into egg mixture, then place in bag. Shake until chicken breasts are well coated. In a 12 inch skillet, heat oil over medium high heat. Add chicken; cook 6-8 minutes turning once, until chicken is no longer pink in center.
  4. Meanwhile, in a 1-quart saucepan, heat all sauce ingredients except onions over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until thickened and bubbly. Spoon sauce over chicken before serving; sprinkle with onions. Serve on a bed of couscous or rice.
