We’re putting a unique spin on the classic Asian stir-fry by using verdant cilantro sauce (which also features onions, garlic, jalapeño, and lime juice) to lend bold, herbaceous flavor to our tender chicken and vegetables. A garnish of sesame seeds adds pleasant crunch and a hint of nuttiness to each bite.
