      This was good. I doubled the sauce mixture, just to be sure I had enough. That worked well if you think you might have some leftovers. It has a light, lemony taste.

      This was a delicious way to make chicken! Very easy to prepare and a great citrus flavor without being TOO lemony. I will be making this again, and would recommend it to anyone who loves Sesame Chicken with a twist. :) Thank you!! :o)
