Finely chop 4 cloves of garlic and set aside.
Prepare the chicken thigh: debone if necessary, rub a little oil, half a tablespoon of light soya sauce, half a tablespoon of dark soya sauce and half a teaspoon of sugar on both sides. Add half a tablespoon of mirin to make it authentic, but it's ok without. Then grill in an oven for 10 min skin-side down and 5 min skin-side up.
Meanwhile, boil the pasta. Keep watching the chicken and stop the oven when done! Once pasta is cooked, heat some oil in a hot frying pan and lightly brown the garlic, then toss in the pasta with the heat off to flavour.
Finally, serve the chicken with the pasta on a bed of chopped lettuce for that mos-burgerish feel (and your daily dose of greens).
Yes, this also works in a burger bun with mayo but I only had pasta handy.
