    txghog's Note:

    This is my all-time favorite low-fat, low-cal recipe. I got it from a great cookbook, More Healthy Homestyle Cooking, and I have to say that this recipe is worth the price of the book! For more crunch and color, you can cook some red pepper and trimmed snow peas for 4 minutes in the skillet before adding the chicken. I like it just the way it is, though, served over rice. Enjoy!

      I didn't quiiiiiite follow the recipe because I was out of sesame seeds & sesame oil and there were some major storms going on so running to the store was not an option... but I DID have peanut butter!!!! And for that substitute I am rating this recipe with a million huge gold shiny stars!!!!! I doubled the sauce ingredients and instead of the oil and seeds, mixed in 1 tbsp of chunky peanut butter and my Sunday Night Dinner girls RAVED.. as did my taste buds. Definitely making this one again. DEFinitely!!!!

      Great little dish, the only change I made was to halve the sugar (due to diabetic concerns) but otherwise left as was and we really loved it. Would even suggest if cutting the chicken into nugget (one bit size) pieces you could serve this as an appertizer in a bowl and pass around with some toothpicks for people to take a piece. This time I served with steamed vegetables but next time I will serve with fried rice and steamed vegetable. Thank you txghog, made for Healthy Choices ABC.

      Not as good as high calorie recipes, but all enjoyed this healthy version.
