 Ingredients List

  • 4-6 lbs boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • 4 cloves garlic (chopped)
  • 1 shallot (chopped)
  • 4 tbsp Sesame seed oil
  • 1 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper

Chop garlic and shallot, set aside.

Whisk sesame oil, soy sauce, chopped garlic, shallot, liquid smoke, black pepper, ketchup, and maple syrup together in bowl, then divide into 2 1-gallon freezer bags. (If freezing, be sure to label bags ahead of time.)

Marinate chicken in bag for at least 30 minutes or longer, or press out air from bag and freeze.

Thaw if frozen. Grill 7-8 minutes per side, basting with additional marinade, if desired.
