"Delicious! And relatively easy to make. It even went over well with the kids. I was using a charcoal grill, so I pounded the whole chicken breasts down to an even thickness before grilling, and then cut them into strips afterward. I also couldn't find any straight tahini, so I used hummus as the thickener for my sauce. I will definitely be making this again."
