Prep this dish a day in advance of your barbecue by marinating thighs overnight in a sweet, savory sauce. This summery Sesame Soy Grilled Chicken Breast recipe is inspired by Hawaiian cuisine, blending flavors from Asia and the tropics.
1 1/2 cups Raley's Purely Made Organic Brown Sugar
2 cups low sodium soy sauce
2 cups water
1 bunch green onions, cut on the bias, divided
2 medium garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp. sesame oil
13.5 oz coconut milk
Remove fat from chicken breasts if desired.
Whisk together brown sugar, soy sauce, water, 1/2 the green onions, garlic, sesame oil and coconut milk in a large bowl. Reserve half in the refrigerator in an airtight container for serving. Reserve remaining green onions in a plastic bag in the refrigerator for garnish.
Add chicken breasts to bowl, cover and marinate overnight.
When ready to cook, preheat grill to about 400 degrees F.
Place marinated chicken breasts on grill and reduce heat to low to prevent the marinade from burning. Cook about 5-7 minutes per side or until an internal temperature of 165 degrees F is reached. Garnish with remaining chopped green onions and serve immediately with reserved sauce.
