Hospitality & Food

Posted on May 30, 2015.

One of our foundational values here at YWAM Denver is to practice hospitality. YWAM affirms the ministry of hospitality as an expression of God’s character and the value of people. We believe it is important to open our hearts, homes and campuses to serve and honor one another, our guests and the poor and needy, not as acts of social protocol, but as expressions of generosity. And people love when you have them over for a good meal!

Below is a recipe that aims to please. Bon appetite and happy hosting!

Tim Ferriss’ Crisp-Baked Sesame-Coconut Chicken
1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
1 egg yolk
1 tsp sesame oil
Pinch of mustard powder
Pinch of salt
Pinch of pepper
1 1/2 lb boneless, skinless chicken
Handful of sesame seeds
Handful of coconut flakes

Preheat the oven to 450°F.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl, whisk together greek yogurt, egg yolk, sesame oil, mustard powder, salt, and pepper.
Add the 1 1/2 lb of 1″ chicken chunks and toss to coat.
Spread the sesame seeds and coconut flakes on a plate and combine with your fingers. With one hand, lift each piece of the chicken from the mayonnaise mixture and set it on top of the sesame-coconut mixture.
With the other (clean, dry) hand, sprinkle some of the sesame-coconut on top.
Transfer the chicken to the prepared baking sheet as you do so. The pieces don’t have to be completely coated with sesame-coconut to end up heavenly.
Bake until golden brown and cooked through, 20–22 minutes.
Let cool for 1–2 minutes (to allow the crust to firm up a bit), then serve.
