    Step 1

  • Prepare rice according to package directions.

    Step 2

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

    Step 3

  • Place chicken thighs in a zip-top bag or shallow dish, cover with marinade. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, or 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, 8-10 minutes. Place the cooked chicken on a clean plate. Repeat with remaining chicken.

    Step 6

  • Pour marinade into the skillet and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and whisk until reduced to a thick glaze, about two minutes.

    Step 7

  • Remove from heat and add chicken back to skillet. Coat chicken with glaze.

    Step 8

  • Serve sliced chicken over rice, garnished with green onions and sesame seeds.
