Sesame Sweet Chicken is another family favorite.
I have been making this recipe for years. It’s a perfect marinade for chicken when you’re hosting a group of friends and you’re planning to cook on the grill. I mix up the marinade the day before the party. Then I pound the chicken thin and place in a bowl or large glass dish. Cover the chicken with the marinade and turn to coat it well. Cover with plastic and marinate overnight. If you are in a rush you can marinate it for just an hour but overnight is best!
Sesame Sweet Chicken
3 pounds of chicken (boneless thighs or breasts)
½ cup hoisin sauce
¼ cup honey
3 Tbsp lime juice
2 Tbsp soy sauce
1 Tbsp chopped ginger
1 Tbsp toasted sesame seeds
½ tsp ground cumin
½ tsp paprika
Arrange the chicken in a bowl or shallow dish. Combine the remaining ingredients in a small bowl and pour over your chicken. Coat the chicken well and cover with plastic wrap. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least an hour, overnight is better.
Prepare your grill. Remove the chicken from the marinade and grill for about five per side or until done. Brush with marinade while cooking. Serve hot.
Makes about 6 servings and is easily doubled or even tripled.
