    Goma Dare Roast Chicken with Maple Carrots


    Here’s my take on a super easy Sesame Chicken, Delishar-style and it only requires 3 ingredients! It’s so simple that the kids can do it themselves while you tend to other side dishes. I cannot begin to tell you how it perfumed my house and set off growling tummy while it bakes in the kitchen. My girls walked into the house and exclaim, “Mmmmm Mom, it smells really good in here! I can’t wait for dinner!!”

    This was all thanks to the special ingredient, Mizkan’s Sesame Sauce with Nuts. The nutty, savoury, and drool-inducing aroma was unreal. To be honest, I was quite surprised by how good the roast chicken thighs turned out! The chicken was simply marinated in Mizkan‘s Sesame Sauce and oven baked. It was absolutely juicy and packed full of flavours with each bite. I love how the sugar in the sauce has caramelised as it bakes and gives such a gorgeous hue to the skin of the chicken thighs.

    I served the delicious sesame sauce chicken thighs with a simple maple glazed roasted Dutch carrots and a side salad dressed with the same Sesame dressing for a dinner that was quite effortless. My family, even my non-meat-loving girl finished her whole chicken thigh with no fuss. Guess this recipe will be making its way on the rotation based on how well-received it was! Please try it and let me know what you think. 🙂
