We call this disco chicken not only because its sheen and the sesame seeds bring to mind a disco ball but also because people have been know to do a little dance when they find out it’s on the menu. Make extra because leftovers, if there are any, are popular.
Combine top 8 ingredients (to and including lemon juice) in a bowl or shallow pan if you’re marinating. If you are marinating (you really don’t have to) add chicken and set aside to marinate up to 48 hours. If you are not marinating the chicken just toss the chicken in the sauce.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Layer the sliced onions in the bottom of the pan and lay the chicken over the onions skin side down.
Add the dissolved corn starch to the marinade/sauce, stir well and pour over the chicken.
Sprinkle the chicken with fresh ground black pepper and sesame seeds. Cook the chicken 30 minutes.
Turn the chicken skin side up, glaze with juices in the pan and sprinkle with black pepper and sesame seeds, cook another 30 minutes.
Serve making glaze the chicken with sauce and onions. Could be served with rice but is great with just broccoli and a salad.
