  • 2 lbs boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • cup liquid aminos
  • 3 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1/2 cup Swerve Brown Sugar alternative
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 green onion sliced
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar


  • In a plastic zip top bag, shake together liquid aminos, rice wine vinegar, sesame oil, brown sugar alternative, ginger, garlic, red pepper flakes, black pepper, and green onion.
  • Place chicken thighs in the bag and seal. Allow to rest on the counter while you prep the grill OR place in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours and up to overnight.
  • Set up the grill with two zones: direct and indirect cooking. Heat grill to approximately 500 degrees. Oil grates prior to putting the chicken on the grill.
  • Remove chicken from marinade and cook directly over heat for two minutes on each side. Move chicken to indirect heat and continue to cook for 15 to 20 minutes or until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees.
  • Remove the chicken from grill and wrap in aluminum foil. Allow to rest for 10 minutes.
  • Serve garnished with toasted sesame seeds and green onion, if desired.
