This is the BEST grilled chicken recipe! Not just because I'm obsessed with Korean food, it's just so juicy and flavorful, and this is coming from a girl her prefers dark meat. It's also quick and easy to make, perfect for weeknight grilling.
1pound2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut in half lengthwise
1/4cuplow sodium or gluten-free soy sauce
1/4cupunsweetened apple sauce
1/4cupfinely chopped yellow onion
1tbsplight brown sugar
1teaspoonred pepper flakes(optional)
1teaspoonsesame seeds(plus more for topping)
2thinly sliced scallions(white and green parts)
Place the chicken breasts, 1 at a time, in a Ziploc bag. Pound the chicken breast to an even thickness, about ½ inch thick, being careful not to puncture the bag.
In a medium bowl, combine the soy sauce, apple sauce, onion, sesame oil, ginger, brown sugar, garlic, red pepper flakes, if using and sesame seeds. Reserve ¼ cup of the marinade and transfer the remainder to the Ziploc bag with the chicken. Refrigerate and marinate for at least 1 hour.
Over medium-high heat, grill the chicken for 2 to 3 minutes or until it no longer sticks to the grill. Turn the chicken, spoon the reserved ¼ cup of marinade over each breast and grill an addition 2 to 3 minutes.
