I don’t have a video for this recipe.
If I had a photo, I would most certainly use it. That is... unless the photo I have sucks. For now, you'll just have to picture a big heaping helping of
Sesame Chicken Tenders
...in your mind.

Sesame Chicken Tenders

My friend Stephanie turned me on to these. It’s the perfect picnic item. We use those already tender-shaped tenders from the store. You could easily use breasts or thighs - chicken that is.


  • 12 chicken tenders, or 3 boneless skinless breasts
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons celery salt
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 cup bread crumbs - I like the Japanese kind, panko
  • 1/2 cup sesame seeds
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted


  1. Mix sour cream, lemon juice, celery salt, Worcestershire and garlic in a bowl
  2. Add chicken, coat well
  3. Allow to marinate anywhere from 1/2 an hour to overnight - longer is better
  4. Heat oven to 350
  5. Remove chicken from marinade and cover in crumbs - place on a greased baking sheet
  6. Sprinkle with sesame seeds, and drizzle with butter
  7. Bake 40-45 minutes
  8. Serve with any kind of dipping sauce - plum would be good. Stephanie mixes apricot jam and horseradish.
