A great marinade to use before grilling or as a precursor to stir-fries. :)

Top Review by ChrisMc

I used a bit more sesame oil and red pepper than in the original recipe, but really enjoyed the way it turned out. I let chicken marinate overnight in this, then stir-fried the chicken, added some vegetables, and poured in a bit of the leftover marinade. It made a great dinner over rice.
