Savor the flavors of Korea with this grilled chicken coated with a garlicky soy sauce glaze that's inspired by a Seoul street-food treat.
I use juicy, meaty chicken thighs for this quick meal. Look for the skinless, boneless kind. The chicken can be grilled outside, cooked on a stovetop grill or sauteed in a skillet.

KOREAN GRILLED CHICKEN
¾ pound boneless, skinless chicken thighs
2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
1 teaspoon minced garlic

Place chicken thighs in a plastic bag. Add soy sauce, vinegar, garlic, sesame oil, mustard, ginger and pepper. Seal the bag and gently shake to combine ingredients. Marinate about 5 minutes.
Remove chicken and pour marinade into a sauce pan. Grill chicken about 6 inches from heat for 5 minutes; turn and cook until done, about 3 minutes. A meat thermometer should read 165 degrees.
Meanwhile, boil marinade until it thickens, 1 to 2 minutes. Spoon over chicken. Makes 2 servings.
