DIRECTIONS

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
