  1. Mix the salt, pepper, and chicken spice in a Ziplock bag, place the chicken in the bag, and shake it to cover the chicken.

  12. Bake chicken for 30 minutes, basting with tray juices every 10 minutes (3 times).
  13. Sauce should be syrupy by the end so you can glaze well.
  14. Transfer chicken onto a serving plate.
  15. Pour over syrup and sprinkle with sesame seeds and green onion.
  16. Serve!
