Sesame Ginger Crusted Chicken- a 10 minute Lean and Green Recipe

Simple chicken breast comes to life with the zesty flavors of orange, ginger and sesame in this easy lean and green recipe.  Prepared in as little as 10 minutes, you’ll make this a go-to over and over again.  My suggestion?  Cook extra as it’s amazing chilled & sliced on salad, on cauliflower crust pizza and more!

Sesame Seeds actually grow in pods on bushes in Africa & tropical climates and contain a substantial amount of iron, magnesium, phosphorous, potassium, copper and manganese.


4 tsp      Stacey Hawkins Valencia Orange Oil (divided)

4 tsp      Stacey Hawkins Toasted Sesame Ginger Seasoning

4            boneless, skinless chicken breasts, flattened to 1/2″ even thickness


  1. Place chicken breasts on a plate.  (To flatten, wrap in plastic wrap, place on a cutting board and hit flat with a meat mallet or bottom of a medium sized frying pan.)
  2. Drizzle 1 tsp of Valencia orange oil over one side of the chicken and rub to coat.
  3. Sprinkle chicken with Toasted Sesame Ginger Seasoning.  Approximately 1 teaspoon per chicken breast.
  4. Place large frying pan over medium-high heat.  Add remaining 3 tsp of orange oil and heat until sizzling.
  5. Add chicken and cook for 4-5 minutes on each side, until chicken is fully cooked and sesame seeds are slightly  browned.
  6. Serve hot.
