Prep Time 15 mins
Cook Time 15 mins
Total Time 30 mins
- 6 Chicken Thighs boneless skinless
- 2 cups soy sauce I used low sodium
- 3/4 cup brown sugar I used dark but either is fine
- 1 inch fresh ginger grated
- 2 cloves garlic grated
- 1/4 cup sesame oil
- 5 green onions sliced thinly (white and green parts)
- 1/2 tsp Sesame seeds optional for garnish
Combine all of the ingredients, except for the chicken, in a closable storage bag or large bowl. Shake or stir to dissolve sugar. Scoop out about 1/2 cup and set aside. Add chicken to the bag/bowl and allow to marinate for two hours or even overnight.
When it's time to grill, remove chicken from the bag/bowl and shake to remove extra liquid. Discard the marinade. Grill until cooked thoroughly, approximately 6 to 8 minutes per side. Remove and cover loosely with foil for 10 minutes.
While the meat is resting, heat reserved sauce until thickened, approximately 10 minutes.
Chop the chicken in small pieces and serve over rice. Drizzle with thickened sauce and garnish with sesame seeds if desired.
