Well I learned a few things while pricing this dish - I use kikkoman soy sauce which is TRIPLE the price of other soy sauces... guess what I'll be buying next time? Also, Garlic bought in the big bags at the grocery store work out cheaper that buying individual heads, so in reality the garlic portion of this dish should be much less. AND I LOVE sesame oil, but I won't use it on the chicken next time, maybe sprinkling sesame seeds over the finished dish will give a similar taste balance, but sesame oil is expensive too! Good thing there was leftovers...
