On my way to 100 recipes in 100 days. Here is recipe 88: Weight Watchers Sesame Chicken!

I grew up eating lots of different meals out of Weight Watchers cookbooks and magazines.  The thing I really like about these recipes (other than the healthy aspect) is how easy they are to prepare.  Its like they were made for busy moms.

Weight Watchers Sesame Chicken

You can have this chicken as the main part of your meal with a few sides, or it would be really good in a wrap or as a salad topping for lunch.  Very versatile.
