This was delicious! Loved the flavor of the recipe and how easy it was to make. I forgot to buy coconut oil at the store, that was the only thing missing but it still turned out great! I’ll definitely be making this again!

Great recipe! I added extra veggies and forgot to bread the chicken but it still turned out great. Pretty quick and easy recipe too!

Due to a nut allergy in my family, I omitted the coconut oil and didn’t have sesame seeds on hand…the dish was still very tasty!
