The sesame oil adds a subtle flavor to this easy 30 minute dish! Chicken can be used instead of fish. This recipe is popular in California, Asia, Australia and parts of Europe!

I used green bell peppers, because I had those on hand. I also used fresh pineapple instead of canned. Loved the sesame oil in this! I didn%u2019t make rice-a-roni, instead I made Coconut-Raisin Rice Pilaf Coconut Raisin Rice Pilaf. Thanks for sharing a great recipe for the grill! Made for ZWT7.
These are a perfect summer meal! They have a very subtle but delicious flavor. I used boneless chicken breasts, regular onion instead of green onion, and I omitted the rice-a-roni and simply served it with some homemade bread. I also used sherry and opted to include the pineapple, both of which I think really added to the flavor. Because I was using chicken I also needed to grill it for only about 5 minutes per side. I'll definitely be making this again soon. Yum!
