Delicious Dish – Oriental BBQ Chicken

July 30th, 2009 No Comments

This is one of my friends’ favorite dishes I prepare because the chicken is so tender, and the sauce so unique.  You wouldn’t believe it, but a little of the sauce goes a long way.

Actually, I made this in Dallas and used the leftover pineapple salsa (that I made to top halibut the night before) over cold sauteed green beans (from Whole Foods).


4 skinless boneless chicken breasts (about 1 lb)
½ cup hoisin sauce
1 tbsp sesame oil
1 tbsp tomato paste
½ tsp ground ginger
2 cloves garlic, minced or finely chopped.

Very Simply:

  1. Set oven to broil.
  2. Either leave chicken as breast or cut into smaller strips.
  3. Mix remaining ingredients and brush over chicken.
  4. Broil on broiling pan 4-6 inches from heat for 7-8 minutes or until brown.
  5. Turn chicken over, brush with sauce.  Broil 4-5 minutes longer or until no longer pink in center.
  6. Meanwhile, heat remaining sauce in a pan and bring to boil for 1 minute.  Serve with chicken.

**I usually double the sauce just in case.
