Hoisin Chicken

Hoisin sauce is a thick, slightly sweet, slightly spicy sauce used in Asian cooking and is one of the key ingredients to Peking Duck. It's made from fermented soy beans with the addition of garlic, vinegar, and chili peppers but you will often find other spices in it. It's traditionally used as a dipping sauce but there are many recipes out there that use it as a marinade or right in a dish. 


3/4 c Hoisin Sauce
3 scallions
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 inch piece of ginger, minced
Juice and zest of two limes
2 tbs rice vinegar
2 lbs skin on chicken thighs and drumsticks


Preheat grill. Combine the sauce, garlic, ginger, lime zest and juice, and the vinegar in a small bowl and whisk to combine well.  
Once the grill is hot, season the chicken with salt and pepper and toss into the sauce. Place on the grill skin side down over high heat until the skin is crisp. About 5 mins.
Reduce heat and cook the chicken till done, 15-20mins, basting with the sauce often. When done remove to platter and sprinkle with the scallions. Serve with Cucumber Salad  and "Faked" Fried Rice
