  3. GLAZED CHICKEN STEAKSPlace a skillet (best if cast iron) on high heat, then pour a splash of sesame oil. Once the skillet becomes hot, sear the steaks flipping them frequently.

At this point, low the flame and add the honey glaze, and after a couple of minutes, then the soy sauce. Cook the meat until well done but still juicy. Finally, add the toasted sesame seeds and serve immediately.
