"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."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

tahini (sesame paste)
minced fresh ginger
butter, or as needed
skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cut into cubes, or more to taste
all-purpose flour, or as needed
sesame seeds, or as desired
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 household thought that this dish was so-so.
Fantastic! Real quick and tasty recipe.
I wish that there was a 4 1/2 stars, but I'm rounding up. Anyway I really liked this, but felt that the sauce came out sort of... thick. Maybe that's my fault? I had kept the tahini in the fridge and it was a little thick, so I'd suggest that if you are using tahini let it get to room temperature. Anyway, it was really tasty, with a nice hint of sweetness. I used a pound of chicken tenderloins and it worked out well. I used vegetable broth instead of a bouillon cube, and didn't use any sesame seeds because I didn't have any! :)
I didn't use any rice or noodles or anything -- instead, I served it with some sauteed dark leafy greens (an "Asian" blend with bok choy, kale, chard, etc) that I'd sauteed in a peanut oil blend with some more of the fresh ginger. I think it worked well together as a fairly healthy meal.
Really delicious, quick, and easy! I only had powdered ginger and tastes just great!
