Japanese country-style grilled chicken. The thigh meat stays moist and tender, but boned chicken breasts can be used also.

Yummy, easy and healthy. Love it. I did not have green onions and I am allergic to sesame seeds, so I left those items out. Otherwise, I followed the recipe. I will keep this recipe to use again. Thank you.
