Directions:
Combine sesame seeds, rind, and pepper in food processor; process until mixture resembles a coarse meal. Place each chicken breast half between 2 sheets heavy-duty plastic wrap and pound to 1/4" thickness. Heat oil and butter in large nonstick skillet over medium heat until butter melts. Add chicken, cook on each side for 5-6 min., or until done. Remove chicken from pan. Keep warm. Add ground sesame mixture to pan, stirring with whisk. Add broth and bring to a boil, scraping pan to loosen browned bits. Cook until mixture is reduced to about 2/3 c (it will take about 3 minutes.) Add orange juice and cream. Cook 30 seconds, stirring constantly. Serve sauce over chicken
