Place the chicken on a plate or glass container, then pour over 1/3 of the tahini sauce, and mix well to coat. Let it marinate for at least 15 minutes.
Heat the olive oil in a large non-stick pan* over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook, stirring frequently, until golden brown and cooked through, about 6-8 minutes.

Total time doesn't include the time it takes to marinate the chicken.

When cooking chicken, it's always best to reserve some time for marinating because it ads loads of flavor and makes it more tender.
