Korean Grilled Chicken

닭구이 (Dak Gui )

Dakgui is not as well known as bulgogi or Kalbi, but it is one of my favorite dishes. The flavors are similar to teriyaki, but more complex. This can be done with any meaty part of the chicken, but I prefer thigh meat as it has better flavor and is easier to work/cook with than breast meat.
This recipe was also a favorite at my Korean restaurant.
