This was very good! Even my husband loved it and asked to take the leftovers to work. Very tasty for only 6 points! I also used just boneless skinless chicken breasts and I doubled the sauce recipe.
VERY very good. I modified a bit. I toasted the sesame seeds in a dry pan, subbed boneless/skinless breasts for the "chicken parts", added a bag of stir fry veggies at the end and tripled the sauce ingredients. All in all I think it cut the cooking time about in half. Very good flavor, even better left over. LOVED it and will make it again.
This is definitely another winner, marisposa13! I made it for PAC 2006, and I think I made a great choice (both in picking you and in choosing this recipe!). I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts, but other than that I followed the recipe to a T. This is a delicious WW recipe which my entire family enjoyed. Thanks so much for posting!
