INGREDIENTS

    • 1 lb. skinless, boneless chicken thighs (we used RedBird All Natural Chicken Breasts instead)
    • 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce (GF if needed)
    • 1 shallot, minced
    • 1.5 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
    • 2 tbsp. honey
    • 3 tbsp. ketchup (look for no sugar added)
    • 2 tbsp. cilantro, minced
    • 2 tsp. Sriracha (optional)
    • 2 garlic cloves, minced
    • 1 tbsp. sesame oil

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. In a bowl combine the soy sauce, shallots, vinegar, honey, ketchup, cilantro, Sriracha, garlic, and sesame oil.
  2. Add to a large ziploc bag and add the chicken thighs. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours, overnight is even better.
  3. Grilling: Preheat the grill on high. Remove the chicken from the marinade and pour the remaining marinade into a small saucepan. Boil for 10 minutes to create a sauce. Grill on high for 4 minutes on each side, keeping the grill closed. Serve with sauce.
  4. Broiling: Preheat the broiler. Remove the chicken from the marinade and place on a baking sheet covered with foil and sprayed with cooking spray. Pour the remaining marinade into a small saucepan. Boil for 10 minutes to create a sauce. Broil for 5 minutes per side or until cooked through.
