This is a moist, light, and nutty flavored chicken. Topped with zucchini and Parmesan cheese for added flavor. My family loves this for dinner and leftovers for lunch. Goes well with Jasmine rice or a good bread.
INGREDIENTS (for 6 servings):
- 1/2 cup sesame oil
- 3 cloves garlic, chopped
- 1 small red onion, minced
- 6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
- 1 teaspoon salt, or to taste
- 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
- 2 cups sliced zucchini
- 1 cup Parmesan cheese
Pour the sesame oil into a 9x13 inch baking dish, or any dish large enough to hold your chicken in a single layer. Mix in the garlic and red onion. Lay the chicken breast halves in the dish, and turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 3 to 4 hours.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Uncover the chicken in the dish, and top with sliced zucchini. Season with salt and pepper.
Bake uncovered for 1 hour and 30 minutes in the preheated oven. Sprinkle the cheese over the top of the chicken during the last 15 minutes of baking.
