Hi LilBit!!!

It's always a pleasure when you come back 'home'.  I miss your postings and wish you wouldn't make  a stranger of yourself.  How have you been, Lilbit?


Question for you:  Is everything prepared stovetop in the skillet, i.e., is the chicken simmered in the skillet?  I have some leftover steamed veggies I got at my favorite Chinese restaurant that I think will go well with this recipe.  


TIA for your reply.

Hi LBM. Hope you are doing well. Have not seen you here in a while. This sounds like the bourbon chicken like they sell at the Mall that I make less the sesame seeds & green onions. It's really good. DH likes it with rice.
