This recipe is a favorite in our house. I love it, kids love it, hubs loves it. They are a little time consuming, but they are so worth it in the end. When I make them I pair it with the Skinny Baked Mozzarella Sticks (also a HUGE hit in our house) I'll post that recipe soon too.

- 18 oz chicken tenderloins
- salt and pepper to taste
- 2 tsp sesame oil
- 2 tsp low sodium soy sauce
- 6 tbsp toasted sesame seeds
- 1/2 tsp course salt
- 4 tbsp panko
- olive oil spray (I used Canola oil spray)
Preheat oven to 425°. Spray a baking sheet with non-stick oil spray. Combine the sesame oil and soy sauce in a bowl, and the sesame seeds, salt and panko in another. Place chicken in the bowl with the oil and soy sauce, then into the sesame seed mixture to coat well. Place on the baking sheet; lightly spray the top of the chicken with oil spray and bake 8 - 10 minutes. Turn over and cook another 4 - 5 minutes longer or until cooked through.
