I used the (hulled) roasted sesame seeds shown in this picture.
Cut the thigh meat into easy-to-eat pieces. I did not remove the skin, but you can do so if you'd prefer.
Coat the chicken pieces with the seasonings marked by ●.
Coat the skin side of the meat generously with sesame seeds. It's okay just to press down the meat into the seeds.
Lay a piece of parchment paper over your toaster oven's baking sheet, and lay the chicken pieces on it sesame seed side up. Bake for around 10 minutes at 250°C, covering with aluminum foil after 5 minutes.
Once the timer dings, don't remove the chicken from the toaster oven, but let it rest in the warm oven with the heat turned off for a few minutes. It's done! Golden-brown and juicy!
It's tender and tasty even when cold, so pack it in your bento lunch!
Story Behind this Recipe
I had this delicious oven baked sesame chicken at my friend's house. Their seasoning was just salt and pepper, so I tried to find some more Japanese seasonings that would taste good even cold.
If your oven has a temperature setting available, set to 250°C. If you can't set the temperature that high, cook it for longer at a lower temperature. Sesame seeds burn easily, so make sure to cover with aluminum foil after 5 minutes. Make sure to use parchment paper that can withstand a temperature of 250°C.
