    Source of Recipe

    San Diego Union-Tribune (March 3-4, 1993)

    List of Ingredients

    • 3/4 lb Chicken Breasts, Skinless and Boneless
    • 3 tb Flour
    • 2 tb Sesame Seeds
    • 1 tb Soy Sauce
    • 1/2 ts Peanut Oil
    • 1 tb Maple Syrup
    • Red Lettuce Leaves
    • 1 tb Dry Sherry
    • 1 lg Tomato, ripe

    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

    2. Cut chicken into pieces about 1 by 2 inches.

    3. Mix soy sauce, maple syrup, sherry, ginger and Chinese Five Spice together. Add chicken and marinate 20 minutes, turning once.

    4. Meanwhile, place sesame seeds on a baking tray and toast in oven for 10 minutes or until slightly brown.

    5. Drain chicken, reserving marinade.

    6. Dredge chicken in flour seasoned with a little salt and pepper. Shake off any excess.

    7. Heat oil in a non-stick skillet. Add chicken and brown, about 1 minute per side. Spoon marinade over chicken. Reduce heat and saute another minute, or until chicken is cooked through.

    8. Remove from heat and roll chicken in sesame seeds.
