A note about serious food allergies

The late, great comedian Mitch Hedberg once mused about the mysterious sesame seed, "What does a sesame grow into? I don't know! We never gave them a chance!" Give this sesame-crusted chicken a chance, though, and you'll have yourself a delicious, healthy meal. Lime-ginger dressing over a tender butter lettuce salad packs an acidic punch for the aromatic sesame-crusted chicken breast.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Chicken

    Rinse chicken breasts, pat dry, and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Coat both sides of chicken with sesame seeds, pressing gently to adhere.

  2. 2

    Cook the Chicken

    Place a medium oven-safe pan over medium heat. Add 1 Tbsp. olive oil to pan and then add chicken. Cook 4-5 minutes, undisturbed, until white sesame seeds are a light golden brown. Gently flip chicken and place pan in oven. Bake 7-10 minutes, or until chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees.

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Zest lime, halve, and juice. Trim and slice radish into 1/8" rounds. Tear leaves of butter lettuce into pieces.

  4. 4

    Make the Dressing

    In a large mixing bowl, whisk together 1 Tbsp. lime juice, half the lime zest, sugar, soy sauce, ginger, Champagne vinegar, and 2 tsp. olive oil. Season with salt and pepper (to taste). Taste, and add additional lime juice if desired.

  5. 5

    Make Salad

    Add butter lettuce, radishes, and carrots to vinaigrette and toss to coat.
