Directions

  1. Remove colored part of peel from tangerines using a vegetable peeler and very finely chop; juice enough tangerines to yield 3/4 cup juice.
  2. Combine peel and juice in a bowl with soy sauce, honey, garlic, ginger root, sesame oil, cinnamon, and pepper; whisk until honey is dissolved. Pour into a food storage bag.
  3. Cut off rib portions from chicken breasts. Place breasts halves in marinade and seal bag; turn to coat chicken. Refrigerate at least 4 hours, turning bag several times.
  4. Remove chicken from marinade and place in a foil-lined shallow roasting pan. Pour marinade from the bag into a saucepan, boil 10 minutes, until mixture is thick and syrupy. Brush chicken with some sauce. Roast chicken at 375 degrees F for 45 minutes, basting with remaining sauce, until chicken is just barely pink in thickest parts. Garnish breasts with toasted sesame seeds.
