Savor the flavors of Korea with this grilled chicken coated with a garlicky soy-sauce glaze that's inspired by a Seoul street-food treat.

I use juicy, meaty chicken thighs for this quick meal. Look for the skinless, boneless kind. Serve with sesame noodles with broccoli and carrots.

Korean Grilled Chicken

Makes 2 servings

3/4 pound boneless, skinless chicken thighs

2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce

1 tablespoon rice vinegar

1 teaspoon minced garlic

1 teaspoon sesame oil

2 teaspoons Dijon mustard

1 teaspoon ground ginger

Dash of freshly ground pepper

1. Place chicken thighs in a plastic bag. Add soy sauce, vinegar, garlic, sesame oil, mustard, ginger, and pepper.

2. Seal the bag and gently shake to combine ingredients. Marinate about 5 minutes.

3. Remove chicken and pour marinade into a sauce pan. Grill chicken about 6 inches from heat for 5 minutes; turn and cook until done, about 3 minutes. A meat thermometer should read 165 degrees.

4. Meanwhile, boil marinade until it thickens, 1 to 2 minutes. Spoon over chicken.
