TGI's Sesame Chicken Strips Recipe: Fakeaway Recipe Sticky strips of chicken with a BBQ glaze topped with sesame seeds, my take on the famous TGIs dish made slimming friendly!

A few years ago when I first visited TGIs, these were my absolute favourite dish on the menu. I have wanted to try and recreate them for a while, and after lot's of testing, I finally think I have this nailed!

They are tasty little strips, and I absolutely love them! There isn't a TGIs near me sadly, so I had to resort to creating my own! I can also save on some calories this way too.

They are really easy to make, and with my recipe, you don't need to fry them.

I cooked them in the oven on a baking tray with some low-calorie cooking spray.
