Excellent marinade! My husband and I loved it! I didn't have tahini, so I subbed 2 Tbsp. of sesame oil which worked great. I also used 1/4 cup of Splenda instead of 1/2 cup because that would have proven to be waaay to sweet! I also used low sodium soy sauce. I cut the chicken into chunks for kabobs and let it marinate about 8 hours. Boy, was this ever good! It has a sweet, oriental flair to it and is "Absolutely Addictive". It's great paired with steamed broccoli, carrots, baby corn and rice.

Such a flexible recipe. I sub an equal amount of sesame oil for the sesame seeds. I use peanut butter instead of tahini. I use a little less splenda than directed and also use sugar for a separate batch for the rest of the family. Everybody is happy.
