We used chicken strips and this method worked well. Marinated overnight and the end result came out tasty, crunchy, and moist. Love the ease of this chicken, making dinner easy peasy for a weeknight. Thank you, Tis, for sharing. Made it for Billboard Tag.

My chicken marinated an extra day due to a schedule change at work. It turned out very moist and delicious. It seemed to get a little brown, but it certainly didn't taste burnt and the exterior was nice and crunchy. Perfect oven-baked chicken. Thanks for sharing a delicious recipe!

This recipe was made on 4/24 as part of mine and SO's Dinner. Except for accidentally adding 2 Tablespoons of hot sauce instead of 2 teaspoons and leaving out the sesame seeds(personal preference ) the recipe was made as written. I, however baked the chicken @375 degrees for the same length of time. I've tried a lot of recipes for baked chicken and this by far has to be the best recipe I've ever used. The taste was exceptional. Thanks for posting a recipe that will be made again and again. BTW: I made your Steamed Butter Cabbage as a side along with Mashed Potatoes & Gravy. " Keep Smiling :) "

5 stars all the time Tisme, for this lovely recipe. We really enjoyed the chicken prepared this way. It was tender and moist on the inside and crispy on the outside just the way we want it. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe, that we will enjoy often. Made for Best of 2017

What a nice surprise...these came out so crispy and tasty...I had huge chicken breast so I cut them in half...the only draw back with doing that is the skin isn't attached as well if left whole...made for "Pick Me" tag game...

I made this with chicken wings -the recipe is very easy to make and I was surprised how crispy the wings were without frying. My husband, a chicken wing connoisseur, liked these very much. Thanks for posting.
