Soy and Sesame Roasted Chicken
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 1 hour
This is a regular in our home. We use leftovers to make soup or fried rice. You can purchase cut up chicken or even use boneless chicken and adjust cooking times.
3 pounds chicken(s), whole or cut up
2 tablespoons soy sauce, low sodium
1 tablespoon vinegar, balsamic
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon pepper, black, ground
2 teaspoons sesame oil, dark
2 teaspoons olive oil
Wash chicken and pat dry with paper towels. To roast quicker, carefully cut chicken through the breast bone all the way down the front side. Spread chicken out flat in a roasting pan with the skin side up. Mix soy, sesame oil, balsamic vinegar and olive oil in a small bowl. Spread soy mixture over chicken with a basting brush. Sprinkle garlic powder and black pepper over chicken. Place in oven and bake at 375 degrees for about 1 hour.
