ready in:45 minutes
An easy way to prepare chicken breast that's ready in minutes and is packed with diverse flavors and crunchy sesame seeds. tIf you have some time ahead of you, I strongly recommend brining the chicken breasts in a salt-water solution for 3 to 6 hours before preparing it so as to have an irresistibly juicy and tender chicken.
