Prep Time 2 hours
Cook Time 5 minutes
Total Time 2 hours 5 minutes


  • 1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken thighs or breasts

For the Marinade:

  • 3 Tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. honey
  • 1 Tbsp. rice wine
  • 1 Tbsp. minced garlic
  • 1 tsp. grated ginger
  • 1 Tbsp. sesame oil
  • Pinch of black pepper


  1. Trim fat off chicken and dice into bite size pieces. Set aside.

  2. In a bowl, whisk together the marinade ingredients then dump into a ziptop bag. Add chicken and squish around until fully coated. Marinate in the fridge for 30 minutes to 2 hours.

  3. Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Remove chicken from bag and reserve marinade. Add chicken to the skillet and cook until caramelized, about 2 minutes. Flip and cook the other side another 2 minutes, or until cooked through. If skillet gets too dry add a bit of the reserved marinade, making sure to heat it through to cook away the raw chicken.
