Recipe for Dry Honey Chicken Tossed With Sesame Seeds:


After a tiring day at office and almost another full day stuck at traffic J, it makes one feel completely drained, with almost no energy left for cooking. On such a similar day I prepared this delicacy, and trust me, it's a really easy and quick dish to prepare and it tastes lip smacking good! It can also be prepared when guests come over at a short notice. Here goes the recipe, Enjoy, and let us know how was it?

You can use olive oil, to make this dish healthier.
