4 each  boneless skinless chicken breasts
0.3333 cup  Bourbon, 90 proof
0.3333 cup  low sodium soy sauce
3 tbsp  brown sugar
1 1/2 tbsp  hoisin sauce
1 tsp  lime peel zest
2 tbsp  fresh lime juice
2 tsp  fresh ginger root
2 tsp  sesame oil
0 1/4 tsp  hot red pepper flakes
2 each  medium garlic cloves
1 each  cooking spray
1 tbsp  cold water
0 1/2 tsp  cornstarch
1 tsp  sesame seeds
  1. Lay chicken breast between two layers of plastic wrap. Flatten to 1/2 inch thickness with a meat mallet of heavy rolling pin.
  2. Whisk together bourbon, soy sauce, brown sauce, hoisin sauce, lime rind, lime juice, ginger, sesame oil, red pepper, and garlic. Take 1/3 cup of the liquid out and set aside. Spoon the rest of the liquid in a large resealable plastic bag. Place chicken in bag, seal, and let rest in refrigerator for at least 1 hour, flipping a few times.
  3. Preheat grill to medium heat, using both burners.
  4. Turn off left burner, keeping right one on. Take chicken out of bag and lay on a cooking spray coated grill rack, over top burner that is on. Grill 2 minutes per side or until golden. Move chicken to grill rack over the burner that is turned off. Place a lid over chicken and grill for 5 minutes, or until cooked through. Cut chicken into diagonal, thin slices, arrange on a serving platter, and keep warm.
  5. Meanwhile, whisk water and cornstarch together. Take the reserved liquid from above and pour it into a pot, mixing in cornstarch mixture. Let boil and cook for 15 seconds, stirring continually. When ready to serve, spoon sauce over chicken and top with sesame seeds.
