  • 1 chicken cut into eighths
  • 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar

  • 4 cloves garlic, minced (about 2 tsp)

  • 1 tsp toasted sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp sesame seeds
  • sliced scallions for garnish


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Coat a 9 x 13-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.

Trim and discard excess fat from chicken pieces, or remove skin altogether.
Arrange chicken in a single layer in the prepared dish.

In a medium bowl, combine soy sauce, brown sugar, ketchup, garlic, ginger and sesame oil, if using. Mix well.

Using a pastry brush coat chicken with half of the marinade; reserve remaining marinade.

Bake, covered, for 45 minutes. Coat chicken with remaining marinade; sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake, uncovered, 30 minutes longer, until glazed and golden.

Transfer to a platter; garnish with scallions.
