    SarasotaCook's Note:

    This is such a simple marinade and great using inexpensive chicken thighs which are simply grilled. You could easily serve this for a dinner party or even every day. I love this served with an edamame salad or a simple green salad with a sesame dressing to combine all the flavors. I love some easy grilled vegetables with this to make just a light dinner. If you want some brown rice with, water chestnuts, scallions and a little soy would draw all the flavors in too. Put the chicken in the marinade which takes 2 minutes to make, shake up the baggie and then 8 hours later ... grill. Even a indoor grill pan will work for this.

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 4-8

    Yield:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Marinade -- Mix everything except the sesame seeds in a measuring cup. Pour 1/2 or a bit more into the baggie and save the remaining amount to use as a glaze as the chicken grills. Put the marinade in a baggie and then add the chicken. Toss to coat well and just let it go. 4-8 hours is idea. I prefer 8, but even 1 or 2 will give it some good flavor. This will also work with bone in thighs as well, and for that matter, pretty much any cut of chicken, but I just love the dark meat of the thighs for this.
    2. 2
      Grill -- Just grill the the chicken on medium high heat to get good grill marks but don't let it flare up. I like to use the marinade to baste a few times as the chicken grills.
    3. 3
      Sesame seeds -- as the chicken grills, add the seeds to a small dry skillet and just cook 1-2 to minutes to lightly toast. That is all you need. Now, I put them in a small bowl so I can coat the chicken with them.
    4. 4
      Finishing the chicken -- The last minute, brush lightly with the marinade flip once and then remove from the grill. Just using tongs. I lightly dip the top of the thighs into the toasted sesame seeds. Not too heavy, just a light topping. And they are done.

      Very tasty and very very easy and quick: five minutes in the morning to start the marinating and then just a quick grill. I served this with brown rice (rice cooker) and steamed asparagus, and I poured my extra sauce over these, with a sprinkle of the toasted seeds, and then put the chicken on top. I also toasted a few almonds to add because they are so good. I omitted the veg oil and parsley from the marinade, and also just used regular white vinegar because it was all I had; it all still tasted great. And, to repeat myself, the effort was minimal. Plus, as I made it, the marinade uses things that I have in the house all the time, so it doesn't even take much planning. Thanks!

      Great recipe! The toasted sesame seeds really finish it off nicely. Can't wait to have left-overs. Will likely dice and add to a salad. Thanks for a recipe that will no doubt be used over and over again. Lulbelle #2
