This Grilled Sesame Chicken is perfect for grilling season. Fortunately for me it’s always grilling season in Hawaii so I have these ingredients on hand at all times.
When it comes to cooking there is one thing the men in my family are extremely good at…grilling. There is my Gramps who makes a darn good beer brat on the grill, my father who is the grilled chicken master, I have a father-in-law that grills the best ribs and brisket, and my husband who can do it all. When I’m not feeling up to cooking I turn to my husband. It is usually burgers or steak on the grill and believe me I have no problem with that especially if it’s a juicy ribeye:)
In my efforts to expand my husband’s grilling dishes I decided to whip up something that I could prep for him ahead of time. Maybe one day I’ll get him to do it all, but for now, baby steps. I’m thinking the morning of grilling I mix up the marinade ingredients and throw it all in a container with the chicken to marinate all day. When my husband gets home he can fire up the grill while he plays with the dogs. Then, as he grills the chicken, I’ll be in the kitchen making a big salad to go with it. Sounds like a good plan right?
This Grilled Sesame Chicken is so delicious with a sweetness from the coconut aminos and that intense flavor from the sesame oil. It is the perfect combination for an enjoyable night by the grill.
Real Food. Real Vibes.
