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.
