  1. Using a sharp knife, remove all chicken meat from bones. Cut into 1/8 inch thick, 2 inch square slices. Put chicken in a medium bowl and add soy sauce.
  2. In an iron skillet heat sesame seeds until they begin to swell up and pop. Put the seeds in the bottom of a wooden bowl along with the salt. Using the back of a large spoon, crush the seeds as finely as possible. Add the pepper, onion, garlic, oil, sugar and monosodium glutamate. Mix together. Stir the chicken and soy sauce into this mixture and let stand for 30 minutes.
  3. Put chicken mixture in previously used skillet. Cover and cook over low heat until chicken is tender (if it becomes too dry during the cooking time, add a little water).

I loved this. My variations: didn't have MSG, and used 2 lbs of boneless skinless chicken instead of a 3 lb. bird. Fantastic and delicious!

your recipe was very good except i tried it using boneless breast which was still very good.

this is a very good meal with rice. I changed nothing but brown sugar for white sugar. very good and quick dinner.

It was pretty good. I feel like the sesame was a bit overpowering for some reason, but I enjoyed it anyway.

I also skipped the MSG and used boneless chicken breasts. We all enjoyed this and my son gave it 5 stars.

The chicken was very flavorful and moist. We'll be making it again.

This chicken came out great!
