    - 4 chicken legs, skin removed
    - 4 chicken thighs, skin removed
    - olive oil spray
    - 1 cup water
    - 1 tbsp hot sauce
    - 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
    - 1/2 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
    - 4 tsp agave nectar
    - 3 cloves of garlic, minced
    - 1/4 tsp ground ginger
    - 2 tbsp scallions
    - 1 tsp sesame seeds


1. Remove skin from chicken.
2. In a heavy large saucepan, brown chicken on high for 3-4 minutes with a little spray oil.
3. Add water, balsamic, soy sauce, agave, garlic, ginger, hot sauce and cook on high until liquid comes to a boil.
4. Reduce heat to low and simmer, covered for about 20 minutes.
5. Remove cover and bring heat to high, allowing sauce to reduce down, about 8-10 minutes, until it becomes a thick glaze, turning chicken occasionally. (Keep an eye on glaze, you don't want it to burn when it start becoming thick)
