· 12 chicken thighs

· 2 tablespoons soy sauce

· 1 tablespoon sesame oil

· 1 piece ginger

· 4 spring onions

For the Glaze

· 4 tablespoons Korean chilli paste

· 2 tablespoons honey

· Juice of ½ lime

· 1 tablespoon soy sauce

· 1 teaspoon sesame oil

· Sesame seeds


Toss the chicken in soy sauce, sesame oil and ginger. Chill until you’re ready to cook. Mix the ingredients for the glaze. Heat the BBQ. If using a coal BBQ, wait for the coals to turn ashen before you start cooking. Cook the chicken for five minutes on each side. Once nicely charred but not fully cooked through, start painting on the glaze. The honey will catch if cooked for too long, apply the glaze in layers, turning it often. Once the glaze has been used up and the chicken is cooked through, transfer to a plate and serve with boiled rice.
