Grilled Sesame Chicken

Rated as 4.65 out of 5 Stars

"Chicken gets a lovely treatment from a soy marinade and basting sauce in this recipe from Catherine Allan of Twin Falls, Idaho. 'The flavor you get from grilling really says summer,' she notes. Enjoy some chicken for dinner and use the extra in the two recipes that follow."

Did not care too much for this chicken. I had to add a bit of sugar and some honey in sauce because I did not like the flavor of chicken. Will not be trying again. Thanks anyway.
