Tahini Chicken

Rated as 4.34 out of 5 Stars
14

"The key ingredient, tahini, is a sesame paste available in Asian stores, but recently has been seen in major grocery chains. It tastes like a mix of Asian and Mediterranean, close to a peanut sauce satay but made from sesame. It's quick, tasty, and out of the ordinary. Serve over couscous or noodles."

  2. Heat butter in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir chicken until no longer pink in the center, 5 to 10 minutes.

I increased the garlic to two cloves and thickened with 1 tablespoon corn starch instead of flour. If I were to repeat I would add chopped pimentos for color and whole cashews for texture. My ho...

This was surprisingly good! I altered it somewhat. I added a yellow bell pepper and an onion. Sauted them with the minced garlic and then added the water and the bouillon. Then I added the tahin...

Really delicious, quick, and easy! I only had powdered ginger and tastes just great!

Made no changes but did double it. My kids and I loved it and we all had seconds (which is against my diet but it couldn't be helped!). I hardly ever make the same thing twice but this one is go...
