Ginger-Lime Sesame Chicken

This was a kitchen experiment that went surprisingly well. I always liked the combination of ginger and lime, and decided to throw in some sesame seeds just for good measure. The result was the slightly tart taste of the lime and ginger mixed with the crunch of the sesame seeds. Delicious.

I served this recipe with a simple side of green beans and almonds, but anything will pair well with it.
