Ingredients

  • 1/4 Cup sesame seeds, toasted
  • 1/4 Cup minced ginger
  • 2 Tablespoons sesame oil
  • 2 Tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon Tabasco brand Original Red Sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1/2 Teaspoon salt
  • One 3 1/2-pound chicken, cut up into four pieces

Directions

Combine the sesame seeds, ginger, sesame oil, vinegar, Tabasco Sauce, soy sauce, garlic, and salt in a large bowl. Stir in the chicken until well coated. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, turning occasionally. 

Preheat the grill to medium or oven to 450 degrees. Place the chicken on the grill rack or broiler pan. Cook the chicken, basting frequently, with the Tabasco Sauce mixture, until the juices run clear when the chicken is pricked with a fork, about 15 minutes on each side.

Barbecue Cooking Tip

If you're cooking something that's been marinated, make sure to pat the item dry before it hits the grill. Any sugar in the marinade will burn.
