Ginger Soy BBQ Chicken

Ginger Soy BBQ Chicken

3-4 lbs chicken thighs, gently rinsed. (I buy the costco prepackaged packs - which are a pain to open especially since I always use the ENTIRE thing.) (1 lb is more or less 5 chicken thighs...so if you make 3 lbs, you'll have about 15 thighs and 4 lbs will yield 20.)

1/2 cup soy
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup sesame oil
1/4 cup mirin (for a sweeter marinade- this is my preference) or sake (for a less sweet version)
2 tablespoons chopped garlic (or more if you like it more garlicky)
4 tablespoons minced ginger, with its juice if possible
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
1 teaspoon black pepper

Mix all the ingredients for the marinade together. Make sure the sugar is all dissolved. Individually dip each piece of chicken into the marinade and then put it into your storage container for marination. (see my beef flank post for details and pictures.) Marinade overnight.

Grill over medium heat until done. Alternatively, set your oven to broil, and broil for 10 minutes or less. (you can't really make it dry, you can really only burn it.)
