A quick and easy recipe that makes a delicious dinner!  This dish took only about 30  minutes to make and was well worth all the effort in that half an hour.  The chicken is oriental flavored and reminds me of sesame chicken, one of my favorite Chinese take-out dishes.  Additionally I cooked up some basmati rice to serve with to add some carb lovin’, basmati rice is a fragrant long-grain rice from India.  The Oriental and Indian flavors combined create an exotic aroma and tasty entree.  If you are a sauce person I suggest doubling up the sauce for this recipe!
