Put the chicken in a gallon zipper bag. Mix the remaining ingredients and pour over the chicken.

Cook the chicken on a grill or bake in a 9x13" pan at 350º for about an hour, turning the chicken over every 10 minutes, until the chicken is done.

After realizing how much my Seoul Chicken reminded me of the Bourbon Chicken that they sell in the food court at the mall, I decided to add a few more ingredients to try to get the flavor a bit more like it. This doesn't have the sticky sauce of the original, but the flavor is similar. Actually, I think the Seoul Chicken is close enough and I'll probably just keep making that since it has fewer carbs and is simpler to make, but I may add a little extra sweetener. I liked using boneless thighs for this because they're easier to eat and the marinade penetrates the meat better than when on the bone.
