Grilled Sesame Ginger Chicken

Don’t get stressed out about the word “marinade,” thinking that you missed the boat if you didn’t get the chicken sitting in it the night before. Yes, it will taste better and be moister if you can get the chicken in the marinade 4-6 hours before grilling, but truly, I’m lucky if it sits in the marinade for 20 minutes, and it’s still delicious.

Grilled Sesame Ginger Chicken

For 6 chicken thighs (or other pieces), prepare the marinade:

  • 1/4 c. each: soy sauce, olive oil, white wine
  • 2 Tbs. sesame seeds
  • 2 Tbs. grated ginger
  • 3 green onions, sliced

Marinade the chicken and place it on a medium hot grill. Brown and turn, then continue cooking until the meat is no longer pink (about 20 minutes total).
