6 servings


  • ¾ cup chicken broth

  • cup soy sauce

  • ¼ cup balsamic vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons honey

  • 2 tablespoons white sugar

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 (1 inch) piece fresh ginger root, minced

  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil

  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes

  • 6 (5 ounce) skinless, boneless chicken thighs, cut in half

  • 2 medium green onions, chopped

  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds


  1. Mix chicken broth, soy sauce, vinegar, honey, sugar, garlic, ginger, sesame oil, and red pepper flakes together in a large skillet over medium heat. When mixture starts to sizzle, add chicken and bring to a boil.

  2. Turn down the heat and let simmer until chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 20 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Transfer chicken to a serving platter, leaving remaining sauce in the skillet.

  3. Turn heat to high and cook until sauce becomes a thick glaze. Remove from heat and pour over chicken. Sprinkle with green onions and sesame seeds.
