Sesame Marinade

Sesame Marinade
From: gardentraveler

4oz soy sauce
2oz rice wine (you can substitute rice vinegar or other mild vinegar or wine)
2oz sesame oil
20drops each Tabasco(can use other hot sauce; I've used 1/2 tsp of sambal oelek) and fish sauce
1/2tsp ginger
1/2tsp mustard
1tbsp minced garlic
3 ozmaple syrup (if you prepare this in a measuring cup, just fill to the 12 oz line)

Mix all ingredients. Pour over 6-8 chicken thighs and marinate as long as you'd like (I don't usually bother with too long since I bake the chicken  in the marinade).

Place chicken in baking dish and pour marinade over.

Bake at 350 for 45 minutes to an hour. Chicken meat will darken because of the marinade, so you may need to look at texture to judge doneness.

We serve this as part of a salad with greens, sugar snap peas, red bell pepper, scallions and mandarin oranges. Garnish with thin chop suey noodles and/or toasted almonds.
