1/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup hoisin sauce
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 teaspoons minced fresh garlic
2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger
2 teaspoons dark sesame oil
8 boneless, skinless chicken thighs (about 4 ounces each)
Sesame seeds, toasted in a skillet
1. Place the chicken thighs in a gallon-size zip-lock bag and add the marinade ingredients. Press the air out of the bag and seal it. Turn the bag to thoroughly coat the chicken, then place it in a bowl and refrigerate it for at least 4 hours (preferably overnight), turning the bag occasionally. Remove the meat from the refrigerator 20 minutes before grilling.
2. Prepare a charcoal fire or set a gas grill to medium-high, close the lid, and heat until hot -- about 10 to 15 minutes.
3. Remove the chicken from the bag and discard the marinade. Grill the thighs until they are no longer pink inside, about 5 minutes per side on a gas grill.
4. Transfer the thighs to a cutting board and let them rest for about 5 minutes, then slice each piece at a diagonal. Sprinkle on the toasted sesame seeds. Serve over rice, with broccoli.
