Sesame Sweet Legs

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by HOUSEMANAGER Charle

Asian grilled chicken thighs basted with a sweet, sticky sesame sauce, these "legs" are Mmm.. Mmm.. good! Taking a cue from those master chefs the Podleski sisters, I have compiled a collection of taste sensations starting with this one. And guess what else? It's low fat! (Overnight marinade time is not included in prep time).

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. ARRANGE chicken pieces in a shallow glass dish.
  2. TOAST sesame seeds by placing them in a small skillet over medium heat and shaking the pan until they turn golden; cool them completely before using.
  3. COMBINE all remaining ingredients in a small bowl (reserving about a ½ cup) and pour over chicken being sure to coat both sides with marinade; cover with plastic and refrigerate overnight alongside with the reserved ½ cup portion.
  4. PREPARE grill temperature to medium-hot; remove chicken from marinade and grill for about 10 minutes per side being careful not to burn them; brush frequently with the reserved portion of marinade.
  5. SERVE hot over your favorite rice or choice of accompaniment.
