One of my favorite weeknight dinners to make is chicken strips because they are quick and usually a crowd pleaser. When the craving strikes, I usually turn to my recipe for Crunchy Cajun Chicken Tenders, but this week I wanted to try something a little different. I love the combination of sesame seeds and chicken and I happened to have a huge jar of sesame seeds in my pantry so I decide to make Sesame Chicken Strips. The best part about these is that the combination of the sesame seeds and bread crumbs crisp up nicely in the oven so you can bake these instead of frying them.
I usually use panko bread crumbs for recipes like this but I ran out this week. Instead I substituted plain bread crumbs for this recipe and they worked just fine. However, if you do have panko bread crumbs around the house, they would make these even crunchier.

Looks great, I am trying it out tonight with buffalo sauce and salad with blue cheese.

I made these today and they came out great! Crispy outside and tender inside. I had them with some homemade BBQ sauce, rice and spinach. Delicious!

These remind me of my friend’s chicken schnitzel recipe, except yours is probably healthier since it’s baked.

These look great! Crispy, quick and satisfying, perfect for a weekday night! I can see myself dipping these bad boys in a tangy peanut sauce. I can dip anything in peanut sauce, sometimes I just dip my fingers in it… weird!
Enjoy mother’s day!

Marta- haha, I don’t know about dipping my fingers in peanut sauce, but I bet it would be super yummy with these. I hope you had a nice mothers day. I spent mine hoping my best friend would have her first baby but the little bugger hasn’t come yet.
