This made for a great weekend meal definitely company worthy and one that will see to repeats as it is both quick and easy and one that was enjoyed. I haven't been able to find the toasted sesame oil, other than using the regular sesame oil I made as posted.

Yum. I used chicken tenders (had them on hand) and added a little more lemon juice cuz I like it. lol. This was really easy to make and very good. I think next time that I would double the sauce so that there is a bit more in each bite. Thanks Teresa, for another nice recipe. Made for FYC tag.
