If you like the taste of sesame seeds as much as I do, you'll love these Sesame Encrusted Chicken Tenders coated with sesame seeds, panko and a hint of soy sauce. Bake them or make them in the air fryer!

Preheat oven to 425°F. Spray a baking sheet with non-stick oil spray.
Combine the sesame oil and soy sauce in a bowl, and the sesame seeds, salt and panko in another.
Place chicken in the bowl with the oil and soy sauce, then into the sesame seed mixture to coat well.
Place on the baking sheet; lightly spray the top of the chicken with oil spray and bake 8 to 10 minutes, until slightly browned on the bottom.
Turn over and cook another 4 - 5 minutes or until cooked through and the edges are crisp. Serve over rice with more soy sauce, if desired.
