Sesame Grilled Chicken

Thanks to Katie Fagan in Virginia for sending this recipe!
1 Tbsp. sesame seed oil
3 garlic cloves
½ cup soy sauce
¼ cup rice wine vinegar
¼ cup brown sugar (Stevia would be a good substitute)
2 Tbsp. ginger root (grated)
¼ cup cilantro (chopped)
4 scallions (chopped)
6 chicken breasts (boneless, skinless)
2 Tbsp. sesame seeds (toasted)
Combine marinade ingredients. Add chicken and marinate 3 hours or overnight. Remove chicken from marinade and grill over medium-high heat 4-5 minutes on each side, basting with marinade. Toast sesame seeds in frying pan over medium heat, shaking to prevent burning. Sprinkle over grilled chicken. Serve with steamed veggies and rice or couscous.
