Sesame Marinade for Chicken

READY IN: 6hrs 12mins
Recipe by Ambassador27

This is a quick and easy marinade for chicken. I came up with it one day while cleaning out my spice cabinet. I made it for my family one night with white rice and steamed veggies and they really enjoyed it.

This was a very tasty and different marinade for chicken, not the common teriyaki, citrus or Italian marinaded chicken. I liked the flavor and that it was grilled, rather than fried in oil. I didn't tasted the sake, which I didn't have on hand, and had to buy. I also liked that there was very little soy sauce and the pinch of red pepper flakes was just the right heat for me(can't do real hot). I served this with recipe #146665 and green beans. I will make again, but, not bother with sake and add more garlic. Thanks for a great recipe!!
