Asian sticky chicken and sesame strips

sesame chicken feature

Children love these chicken strips covered in sesame seeds. A handful of sesame a day provides excellent levels of antioxidants, minerals, vitamins and protein, however 100 grams contain just over 500 calories. The good news is the oil /fat content lowers ‘bad’ cholesterol and increases ‘good’ cholesterol.
