- 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 1/4 cup sesame oil
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons fresh ginger, minced
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
- 1 teaspoon sesame seeds
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Start by marinating the chicken. In a bowl, combine the sesame oil, soy sauce, minced ginger, minced garlic, honey, rice vinegar, and sesame seeds. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
- Place the chicken breasts in a resealable plastic bag or a shallow dish, and pour the marinade over them. Seal the bag or cover the dish and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, or up to 4 hours for maximum flavor.
- Preheat your grill to medium-high heat and lightly oil the grates to prevent sticking.
- Remove the chicken from the marinade and grill for about 6-8 minutes per side, or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C) and the chicken is cooked through.
- While grilling, baste the chicken with the remaining marinade for a glossy finish.
- Once done, remove the chicken from the grill and let it rest for a few minutes before serving.
- Serve your Sesame Ginger Glazed Grilled Chicken hot, garnished with fresh sesame seeds and a sprinkle of chopped green onions.
