Yummy, easy and healthy. Love it. I did not have green onions and I am allergic to sesame seeds, so I left those items out. Otherwise, I followed the recipe. I will keep this recipe to use again. Thank you.

Absolutely wonderful!!! We all loved this recipe it had so much flavour and the chicken was so tender. I skewered the chicken for ease of cooking but apart from that made as is and it was gorgeous. I will be making this often and can not believe no one has reviewed this yet. I served mine with egg and mushroom fried rice a Japanese recipe I have and it went perfectly. Huge thumbs up loved by all. Thanks Alskann for another winner
