Lemon-Sesame Chicken & Rice

Looking for something quick and easy for dinner? This is the perfect recipe for that. About 20 minutes or so and it is almost as though you have a gourmet dinner!

For the Sauce:
 1/4 cup soy sauce
zest of 1 lemon
juice of 1 lemon
2 TBSP sesame oil
1 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp splenda (or sugar)

Combine all the sauce ingredients and warm in a small sauce pan.

To complete the recipe:
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 tsp garlic powder
16 oz chicken breasts, cut into strips
canola oil
Cooked rice with peas

Combine flour, pepper, and garlic powder in a large ziploc bag. Add the chicken & shake to cover the chicken.  Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken strips in a single layer. Cook for about 4 minutes, turning once, or until crisp and golden brown.

Spoon rice onto a plate, top with chicken and drizzle with sauce.
