From the Test Kitchen

In this quick-cooking meal, stir-fried chicken and vegetables get a lift from a complex sauce of sesame-based tahini, coconut aminos (a savory seasoning sauce made from the sap of the coconut tree), spicy ponzu sauce, and more. To round out the bold flavors, we’re serving it all over rice cooked in slightly sweet coconut cream.
