Reviews for Ginger Sesame Chicken for 2
"I enjoyed this recipe. I chose it because I happened to have everything on hand which is always a plus! I would recommend toasting the sesame seeds before adding them to the mixture as they were pretty crunchy in the finished product. Overall, it was a good meal."
