Sesame-Crusted Chicken

Main Dish


6 chicken breasts, skin removed


1 cup soy sauce

1 cup frozen orange juice concentrate

2 teaspoon minced garlic

Crumb coating:

1 teaspoon 5 spice powder

1 cup cracker meal

¼ cup bread crumbs, unseasoned

¼ cup sesame seeds

Teriyaki glaze:

1 cup brown sugar

½ cup soy sauce

2 tablespoon Benefiber®*

¼ cup sherry or white wine

1 teaspoon minced garlic


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

For marinade: Combine soy sauce, orange juice and garlic. Whisk together; add chicken and marinate overnight.

For crumb coating: Mix together the 5 spice, cracker meal, bread crumbs and sesame seeds. Drain chicken (do not reserve marinade). Dredge chicken pieces in coating mixture and place on greased baking pan in a single layer. Bake chicken, uncovered, for 40 minutes.

For glaze: Combine in a saucepan the brown sugar, soy sauce, sherry or white wine and minced garlic and bring to a boil, then simmer for about 10 minutes or until sauce reduces to a glaze. Remove from stove and cool slightly. Add Benefiber and mix well.

After 40 minutes, remove chicken from oven. Brush glaze generously over chicken, making sure to cover all pieces. Continue baking another 15 minutes.
