I copied this from my daughters clean eating magazine. I'm sure this is going to need salt...so feel free to add some unless you are really watching your sodium and/or really eating clean. :)

I made a small portion of this for a light lunch with salad. We both felt it would taste great topping the salad, so we did! This is very flavorful, with an Asian flair. I did add some chopped green onion, and next time will probably add some toasted sesame seeds too. Thanks for sharing a keeper recipe!
Oh Yum. They were perfecyt
This was fantastic! We increased the sauce quantity (more than we needed to apparently)--I liked the sauce over my plain white rice, the rest of my family wasn't too keen on it. We're going to use the sauce in our stirfry tomorrow in place of teriyaki--we think it will work out okay if we toss it in towards the end of the cooking time on the veggies. It will give us an easy, soy-free option. I garlic salted my chicken breasts while cooking (I cut my breasts thinner horizontally so they cook quicker and more evenly) and it did not detract from the flavor the sauce provided. I agree with a previous chef comment that this chicken would be excellent tossed with a salad, rice or taters, in a sandwich, etc... Quick, versatile, flavorful, easy. Can't shake a stick at that!
