Cuisine: Korean / American
Prep Time: 10 minutes plus 1 hour to marinate
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes plus 1 hour to marinate
Servings: 4 to 5


  • 2 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut in half lengthwise
  • 1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped yellow onion
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 1 tablespoon Splenda (optional)
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds, plus more for topping
  • 2 thinly sliced green onions, white and green parts

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Place the chicken breasts, one at a time, in a plastic storage bag. Pound the chicken breast to an even thickness, about 1/2-inch thick, being careful not to puncture the bag.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the soy sauce, sesame oil, ginger, Splenda, onion, garlic, red pepper flakes, if using, and sesame seeds. Reserve 1/4 cup of the marinade and transfer the remainder to the plastic bag with the chicken. Refrigerate and marinate for at least 1 hour.
  3. 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 1/4 cup of marinade over each breast and grill an additional 2 to 3 minutes. Sprinkle with green onions.
