Finely grate rinds of orange, lemon and lime into large bowl. Squeeze out juices and add to bowl. Stir in soy sauce, vegetable oil and hot pepper sauce. Add chicken and turn to coat; let stand for 20 minutes. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)

Reserving marinade, place chicken, bone side down, on greased grill over medium heat; brush generously with marinade. Discard remaining marinade. Close lid and grill for 25 minutes. Turn and grill for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, combine sesame seeds, sesame oil and honey; brush over both sides of chicken. Grill until no longer pink inside, about 10 minutes.
