Hoisin Chicken – redo for the grill

Posted in : Chicken, Pre-prep, Recipe on by : Nicole

The original hoisin chicken is an amazing recipe

Fabulous for pre-prep or I have also frozen the chicken and the sauce after pre-prep for use later!

For this re-do the recipe is the same except i did not simmer the sauce down on the stove top. I’m not sure how i like it better.

Pro tip – pam on the chicken will make the sauce not stick, so gotta risk sticking to the grill and having more sauce. Also did use some of the sauce i reserved as a “salad dressing” to drizzle of the chicken and the salad i had it on.

    • Add hoisin sauce, honey, rice vinegar, sesame oil (no need to mix, let it layer)
