  1. Place chicken pieces in a shallow glass baking dish* large enough to hold all the pieces and be covered with marinade.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, combine Japanese Toasted Sesame Oil, Honey-Ginger Balsamic, soy sauce, almond butter and whisk until blended. Stir in garlic, ginger, 3 chopped scallions, zest, juice, salt and pepper. Pour over chicken turning pieces to be sure everything is coated.
  3. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight. When ready to cook, remove chicken from fridge and let come to room temperature for 15 minutes. Preheat grill on high (400-450º).
  4. Using indirect cooking, place chicken pieces on unlit side of the grill. Cook for 20 minutes, covered, turning once halfway through. Smaller pieces may take 15 minutes, turning halfway through. Internal temp should be 165°. Garnish with remaining chopped scallion before serving. Enjoy!
