    This was delicious!!! I did not marinade the chicken...I placed the chicken in a casserole dish and poured the marinade over it. I also toasted the sesame seeds and sprinkled them over top instead of mixing them in. I baked it at 350. Excellent flavor! Thanks for sharing! - 8/17/10

    Really tasty marinade--which would work equally well with BBQ pork - 7/1/10
