Adding the remaining glaze on the chicken after broiling intensifies the flavor. Be sure to use a clean spoon or brush when adding the final amount of hoisin mixture. You don't want it to come in contact with any utensils that touched raw chicken.
1/4 cup hoisin sauce
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
2 teaspoons bottled minced garlic
2 teaspoons dark sesame oil
3/4 teaspoon bottled minced fresh ginger
4 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
4 lime wedges
How to Make It
Combine first 6 ingredients. Remove 2 tablespoons of hoisin mixture, and reserve to brush on cooked chicken. Line a shallow roasting pan with foil; coat foil with cooking spray. Place the chicken on prepared pan. Brush 2 tablespoons of hoisin mixture evenly over chicken; broil 5 minutes. Turn chicken over; brush with 2 tablespoons of hoisin mixture. Broil 5 minutes or until chicken is done. Spoon reserved 2 tablespoons of hoisin mixture over cooked chicken. Serve with lime wedges.
This had very little flavor. We changed the cooking method to grilling. I served this with CL's Barley and Mushroom Casserole which was also a major disappointment. Very unsual that we hit a dud, and we got two in one night.
This is a great weeknight dinner--a little different than the usual baked chicken & super quick. I did use bone-in skinless thighs & broiled them a few minutes more, but the glaze was very tasty. Served with brown rice & sugar snaps.
