Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup sodium-reduced soy sauce
  • 4 teaspoons granulated sugar
  • 4 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 teaspoons minced gingerroot
  • 1/4 teaspoon hot pepper flakes
  • 8 boneless skinless chicken thighs quartered
  • 1 onion
  • 8 green onions cut_into 1-1/2-inch (4 cm) pieces

Method

In large bowl, whisk together 1/4 cup (50 mL) water, soy sauce, sugar, sesame oil, garlic, ginger and hot pepper flakes until sugar is dissolved. Add chicken and toss to coat; let stand for 15 minutes, turning several times.

Cut onion into quarters; separate into pieces three layers thick.

Alternately thread chicken, onion and green onions onto skewers, reserving marinade.

Place on greased grill over medium heat; close lid and grill, turning once and brushing with marinade halfway through, until juices run clear when chicken is pierced, 12 to 15 minutes.
