This one’s for my buddy Jeff Swan, who loves his sesame seeds! This is one of my top 5 all-time favorite appetizers!

Sesame Chicken Bruschetta
1 pound ground chicken, or chicken breasts*
2 garlic cloves
2 teaspoons sesame oil
3 green onions, finely chopped
1 teaspoon lime zest
1 (1-inch) piece fresh ginger, finely choppe
1/4 cup freshly toasted sesame seeds
1 baguette, sliced 1/2 in on bias
2-3 cups oil

Heat 2 inchs of oil in skillet to medium high.

Combine ground chicken with garlic, sesame oil, lime zest, onion, and ginger, and mix well. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Spoon one heaping teaspoon of chicken mixture onto each slice of bread, spead to coat bread evenly, 1/4 inch thick. Dip meat side into sesame seeds to coat completely.

Place bruschetta, coated side down, in hot oil until sesame seeds are uniformly golden brown. Flip to brown the bottoms. Remove to paper towells to drain.
