  • Skillet



  • Put chicken and oil in a skillet over medium high heat and cook until lightly browned on both sides. Add broth, balsamic, soy sauce, sugar, garlic, ginger, and hot sauce and cook until liquid comes to a boil.
  • Reduce heat to low and simmer, covered for about 15 minutes. Remove cover and bring heat to medium-high, allowing sauce to reduce down, about 5-10 minutes, until it becomes a thick glaze, turning chicken occasionally. (Keep an eye on glaze, you don't want it to burn or completely absorb into the chicken)
  • Transfer chicken to a platter and pour glaze on top. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.
