Garlic Ginger Sesame Marinated Chicken is delicious and easy to make! Chicken breasts are marinated in sauce, and cooked on a BBQ or indoor grill pan!
Place grated fresh ginger, toasted sesame oil, vegetable oil, minced green onion (scallions), and minced garlic cloves into a blender. Blend these ingredients for about 30 seconds, or until mixture is fully blended and fairly smooth.
Pour (scraping blender clean) the marinade into a large re-sealable bag or shallow container. Add the chicken breasts to the marinade, and turn to coat them completely with marinade. Seal bag or cover container, and place in refrigerator to marinate for AT LEAST 1 hour.
After chicken has marinated for at least an hour, spray a grill (off heat) with non-stick baking spray or generously brush with oil. Heat grill on medium-high temperature until really hot, but not smoking. Transfer chicken to the grill. It should sizzle when it hits grill. Once chicken is on grill, do not disturb or move it. After about 8-10 minutes, flip chicken over to the other side. TIP:**Cooking times will vary due to different thicknesses of chicken breasts. Check the internal temperature by inserting a meat thermometer into thickest part of the breast. Chicken is done when internal temp. is 165° F. Remove chicken from grill and let it "rest" for a couple minutes, to let juices redistribute within the meat before serving.
For THICK chicken breasts: After 8-10 minutes, the bottom of the chicken breast should be nice and golden brown. After you flip the chicken over, set a timer for 8 minutes and check for internal temperature. I used thick breasts and they took 18 minutes total to fully cook.
For THIN chicken breasts: Thin cutlet type chicken breasts will obviously cook a LOT faster than thicker ones (they may only take 3-4 minutes per side).
Serve... and enjoy!
