Sesame Chicken with Mustard Sauce

Total Time

Prep: 10 min. + marinating Bake: 35 min.


6 servings

For variety, you can make a cracker-crumb coating for my chicken...substitute turkey for chicken...or grill it instead of baking it. I've even served the chicken in strips with a sauce so it becomes a fun finger food for dipping. -Wanda White, Antioch, Tennessee


  • 1-1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (about 1-1/2 pounds)
  • 2 cups dry bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup sesame seeds
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup shortening, melted
  • SAUCE:
  • 1-1/2 cups prepared mustard
  • 1-1/2 cups plum jam
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons prepared horseradish
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons lemon juice


  1. In a large resealable plastic bag or shallow glass container, combine the first nine ingredients; mix well. Add chicken and turn to coat. Seal or cover and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight, turning occasionally. Drain and discard marinade.
  2. In a shallow dish, combine bread crumbs and sesame seeds. Dredge the chicken in the crumb mixture. Place in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Combine butter and shortening; drizzle over chicken. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until juices run clear.
  3. Meanwhile, combine sauce ingredients in a saucepan; heat through. Serve with the chicken.
