Author: Canadian Living

  • Portion size 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 8 boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • 1/4 cup sodium-reduced soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 4 teaspoons granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons minced gingerroot
  • 2 teaspoons sesame seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 cloves garlic finely sliced
  • 4 green onions cut into 2-inch (5 cm) lengths
Cucumber Pickles:
  • 1 English cucumber thinly sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot pepper flakes

Method

Cucumber Pickles: In small bowl, toss cucumber with salt; let stand for 15 minutes. Drain well.

Add vinegar, sugar, oil, garlic and hot pepper flakes; toss to combine.

Meanwhile, trim any fat from chicken; cut chicken into bite-size pieces.

In bowl, whisk together soy sauce, oil, sugar, ginger, sesame seeds, pepper and garlic. Add chicken and onions; marinate for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Transfer to foil-lined baking sheet; broil, stirring occasionally, until juices run clear when chicken is pierced, onions are slightly charred and almost no soy sauce mixture remains, about 10 minutes. Serve with pickles.
