Amazing… For sure sesame is a very popular and essential ingredient in many cuisines.
It is a primary source of phytonutrients such as omega-6 fatty acids, flavonoid phenolic anti-oxidants, vitamins, and dietary fiber with potential anti-cancer as well as health promoting properties.Today we’re making a honey chicken and you’ll see that sesame will add this additional special touch/taste that everyone will love.
