Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



"The simple things in life are the best" comes to mind when reviewing this recipe. So simple, easy and such great flavors. I did think I had sesame seeds in the cupboard and it was not until I started making this recipe that I realized they had been used, but apart from that I made as written using chicken drumette's. The family really enjoyed these, and scoffed them down in no time! Not even any left for lunches (which is the reason I made them) for the next day! A simple, easy and must try recipe.
