    Step 1

  • Prepare rice according to package directions.

    Step 2

  • In a small bowl, whisk together light soy sauce, garlic, ginger, brown sugar and 1/2 tablespoon oil.

    Step 3

  • Place chicken thighs in a Ziploc bag or shallow dish, cover with marinade. Refrigerate for at least a half hour and up to a day.

    Step 4

  • After the chicken has marinated, heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add 1/2 tablespoon cooking oil. Swirl the pan so that it is coated with oil.

    Step 5

  • Add 4 pieces of chicken and cook until brown on both sides and cooked through. Place the cooked chicken on a clean plate. Cook the next 4 pieces in the skillet.

    Step 6

  • When all the chicken is finished cooking, pour marinade into the skillet and let come to a boil. Whisk marinade as it boils, continue until it cooks into a thick glaze.

    Step 7

  • Turn the heat off and return the chicken to the skillet. Using a spoon, dredge the chicken with the thick sauce. Garnish with scallions and sesame seeds. Place over rice. Serve immediately.
