Combine soy sauce, water, vegetable oil, onion, cauenne pepper, sesame seeds, sugar, salt, and minced garlic. If using whole chickens, cut into quarters; pour the sesame mixture over the chicken pieces and refrigerate for 8 to 12 hours. I use large food storage bags to marinate.

Remove the chicken and reserve the marinade. Put marinade in a saucepan and bring to a rolling boil. Grill chicken over medium coals until done, using the reserved boiled marinade as basting sauce. The chicken should register about 175° on an instant read thermometer when inserted in a meaty section (not touching bone).
