Then we're going with sesame seeds for some crunch, paprika, thyme and baking powder. I whisk that all together. Put it into a ziplock bag and then I remove my chicken pieces from the marinade. Put them into the ziplock bag one or two at a time and shake them all around until they're coated. Now you want to put this on a rack that is set on a baking sheet.
