Sesame Street Chicken

No, it's not in the shape of an Elmo or anything. It's really just Sesame Chicken. But I find when you give something a cutesy name and put it on a stick, kids will eat it.

Now, I recommend you go out to a craft store and load up on some lollipop sticks. You don't want to do what I did, and use skewers. Not safe for kids to be jamming pointy wooden sticks into their adorable little mouths. Of course, I removed the meat for actual eating. But if I HAD lollipop sticks, I would have let them eat it right off the stick.


1 lb chicken tenderloin
1 cup honey or 1/4 cup of brown sugar
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup sesame seeds
1 tbsp minced garlic
salt/pepper to taste

Combine everything but chicken in a medium-sized bowl. Salt pepper to taste. If your kids are more adventurous, feel free to add a little cumin or crushed red pepper for a little spice.

Cut the chicken into two-inch chunks and add to the honey/soy mixture.

When cooking with wooden skewers, it's best to soak them in water first. If you are using lollipop sticks, DO NOT cook with them. Just pop the chicken on afterwards.

Spray a frying pan with PAM, and then lay the chicken on the pan. Fry each side about 6 minutes each.

Serve with a little BBQ sauce or honey for dipping. Add a nice green veggie and they won't even notice!
