      Very enjoyable dish with lots of flavor. I served it over rice with Thai-Style Veggie Kabobs With Spicy Peanut Sauce on the side. Thanks for sharing!

      We doubled the recipe which served 4 of us and left for meals for the DH to freeze for when he does night shift. I served this with fried rice and the DH has already requested we have it again. When we made the marinade I only used the zest of 1 lemon and juice of 2 but upon tasting it (before putting the chicken in) we thought it was a little strong on the sesame so added some extra lemon juice (won't do that again though as the lemon taste definately came out in the cooking though still tasting good. Thank you Chef for a very nice quick stir fry meal.
