6-8 chicken thighs, skin on
5 tablespoons soy sauce
1/4 cup granular Splenda or equivalent liquid Splenda
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup green onion, chopped
1 tablespoon garlic, minced
1 tablespoon sesame oil
5 tablespoons water
Xanthan gum, optional
Place the chicken pieces in a gallon size ziploc bag. Mix the remaining ingredients, except the xanthan gum, in a small bowl. Pour the marinade into the bag with the chicken. Close the bag and knead gently to coat all of the chicken pieces. Place in a shallow pan, just in case the bag leaks. Put in the refrigerator and marinate at least 1 hour, turning the bag over occasionally.
Dump the entire contents of the bag into a 9x13" glass baking pan. Arrange the thighs skin side up. Bake at 425º for 35-40 minutes until the meat is done. Remove the chicken from the baking pan to a serving platter and keep warm.
Skim most of the fat off the juices remaining in the pan and pour into a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and lightly sprinkle the xanthan over the liquid while whisking briskly. Be careful not to let it get too thick. Stop before you think it's thick enough or you'll get glue. Serve the sauce over chicken. The unthickened pan juices can also be served over the chicken and are very tasty over Fried "Rice".

This is very delicious and extremely easy to make! The crispy skin turns a beautiful, bronze color and the flavor is slightly sweet. If desired, shred the meat and serve rolled up in leaf lettuce. Add about 1 carb per 3 leaves to total count.
I have also made this using boneless chicken breasts grilled on my indoor contact grill and it's very good. Check out my Bok Choy & Mushroom Stir-Fry recipe which uses the marinade from the Seoul Chicken.
This is excellent grilled on an outdoor grill. I suggest using boneless chicken thighs because they'll cook more quickly than bone-in thighs. I grilled mine over the highest flame for 4 minutes on the first side and 3 minutes on the other side. They came out perfect with nice grill marks.
