Sesame Cilantro Chicken

First off, sorry for the not so appetizing picture... The honey mixture is running everywhere, but trust me - it is so good! Josh was talking about it a couple days later and how good it was mixed in with the rice, now you know that it is REALLY good if it got his attention! :)

Sesame Cilantro Chicken
(recipe found in Taste of Home Healthy Cooking)
Serves: 4

4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
1/2 cup honey
2 tablespoons reduced sodium soy sauce
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
1 tablespoon minced fresh cilantro - (sorry, I know that it is in the recipe, the name of the recipe even, but I didn't buy the cilantro... I just hate to waste all the extra that I don't ever get around to using!! But the recipe was still delish without the cilantro!)
1 tablespoon sesame seeds, toasted - (or not toasted, come on toasting a tablespoon of sesame seeds? I got three kids running around going wild, waiting on supper - maybe next time!)

Place chicken in an 11x7 baking dish coated with cooking spray. Combine the honey, soy sauce, garlic powder, ginger and cilantro; spoon 1/4 cup honey mixture over chicken. Set aside the remaining mixture.

Cover and bake at 375 for 20 minutes. Uncover; bake 5-10 minutes longer or until a meat thermometer reads 170. Spoon reserved mixture over chicken; sprinkle with sesame seeds.
