2 lbs chicken breasts, cut into chunks
1 red pepper, cut into large chunks
1 tbsp sesame seeds

Korean BBQ Marinade:
¼ cup red onion, grated
1 tablespoon fresh ginger, grated

1 cup soy sauce
¾ cup brown sugar
1 tbsp sesame oil
2 tbsp rice wine vinegar
2 tbsp chili-garlic sauce
Korean BBQ Sauce:
1 cup Korean BBQ Marinade

Cut chicken into chunks and place in a mixing bowl.
Grate the red onion and fresh ginger and mince the garlic.
Whisk together the red onion, ginger, garlic, soy sauce, brown sugar, sesame oil, red wine vinegar and and chili-garlic sauce to make the marinade.
Pour the marinade, reserving 1 cup, over the chicken and refrigerate the chicken for 2 hours.
Then, take the remaining cup of marinade and place it in a small pot and cook over medium heat. Bring it to a boil, stirring often and then allow it to simmer for about 5 minutes.
Mix the cornstarch and water into a slurry texture and add to the marinade and cook for another 3-4 minutes. Remove from the heat and allow the BBQ sauce to cool.
Core and seed the red pepper and cut into chunks.
Remove the chicken from the marinade and alternate the chicken and red pepper chunks onto the skewers.
Then, grill 6-8 minutes on each side. Brush the extra BBQ sauce on during grilling. Sprinkle the sesame seeds and chopped scallions onto the skewers and enjoy!
