Ingredients

  • 4 (4 ounces each) boneless chicken thigh meat
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup mango nectar (I used KERNS)
  • 1/4 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil

Instructions

  • Trim chicken thigh fillets of extra fat, wash and drain well. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • In a bowl, combine mango nectar, barbecue sauce, and red pepper flakes. Marinate chicken for about 4 hours or overnight for best results. Drain from marinade.
  • In a saucepan, bring the mango nectar-barbecue marinade to a boil. Lower heat and simmer for about 15 to 20 minutes or until reduced to 1/2 cup. Add sesame oil and stir to combine.
  • Arrange chicken in a single layer on a hot grill and cook for about 3 to 5 minutes on each side. When the meat starts to lose its pink, start to baste regularly with reduced marinade. Continue to cook for about 3 to 5 minutes on each side or until chicken is cooked through and juices run clear. Let rest for about 5 minutes before slicing.
