Delicious but low-calorie chicken recipe, this originated from Eating Well. Sesame Ginger Sauce can also be used to top fish, tofu, or vegetables.

This was really good. I left it in the marinade overnight (accidentally) and also left the ginger in the sauce all night, so mine was quite pleasantly spicy. I recommend it! I only used half a chicken breast (portioning), so sliced the chicken extremely thin. I plated the chicken slices on top of the sauce and served it with couscous. Made for My Three Chefs event.
