To make the marinade, in a large bowl or sided glass dish, mix the fish, sauce, vinegar, pepper and sesame oil. Whisk the cornstarch into the vinegar mixture until it dissolves. Stir in the garlic, orange zest, green onions and green tea leaves. Add the chicken, turning to coat with the marinade. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours. To make the sauce: Combine the green tea, honey and lemon juice. Set aside until serving time. Remove the chicken from the marinade. Discard any remaining marinade. Preheat the grill or broiler. Place the chicken on the grill and cook for about 8 minutes. Turn and grill about 8 minutes more, depending on the thickness of the chicken or until it is tender and no longer pink in the center. Serve the chicken with the dipping sauce.
