Sesame Chicken

  • Prep Time: 10 hours
  • Cook Time: 30 minutes
  • Total Time: 10 hours 30 minutes
  • Method: Grill


  • 4 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • ½ cup light olive oil
  • ¼ cup white cooking wine
  • ¼ cup white wine vinegar
  • ½ cup soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp dry mustard
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • 3 tsp garlic, minced
  • 4 tsp sesame seeds, toasted


Place chicken in large bowl. Mix remaining ingredients together in a small bowl. Reserve ½ cup marinade for basting. Pour remaining marinade into bowl with chicken. Cover and marinate several hours or overnight in refrigerator. Remove chicken from bowl; discard marinade. Grill chicken over medium heat, about 25-30 minutes or until juices run clear, turning frequently and basting with reserved marinade.


  1. This recipe makes enough to save half of the cooked chicken for another meal (if using it this week, refrigerate; if not, freeze).
  2. If you don’t want to grill the chicken, it can be baked at 350°F until it reaches an internal temperature of 165°F.
  3. You can buy pre-toasted sesame seeds at Asian markets or you can lightly toast your own.
