Great low-fat chicken recipe that is SOOO full of flavor! I like to serve this with steamed green beans and white rice on the side. Wonderful blend of flavors!

I just made this same recipe from the Better Homes and Gardens Big Book of Healthy Family Dinners (minus the sesame seed addition). It is soooo yummy! (didn't particularly care for the orange/cilantro combo, but love the chix!) The sauce is so yummy. Served with rice and a salad. As well, I cut the chix breasts into small pieces and it seemed to cook faster and coat the chix well. T
