Hoisin Glazed Chicken Skewers

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

She Who Must Be Obeyed walked into the living room and said she wanted brochettes. What could I do but obey.

 

I mixed up a glaze of:

 

  • 50 ml (1/4 cup) Hoisin sauce
  • 25 ml (2 tablespoons) soy sauce
  • 25 ml (2 tablespoons) chili sauce (may substitute all or part Asian chili sauce for spicier version)
  • 10 ml (2 teaspoons) lemon juice
  • 5 ml (1 teaspoon) ground ginger

 

 

I cut a little over a pound of boneless skinless chicken breast (you could use thighs if you prefer) into one inch cubes.

 

 

I tossed the cubes with Louisiana Grills Chicken Seasonings.

 

 

I threaded the chicken onto three bamboo skewers that had been soaked in water for 30 minutes.

 

 

I preheated my pellet smoker to 350 F.

 

 

I brushed the chicken with the glaze and put it on the grill for 15 minutes.

 

 

I turned and brushed the chicken again and gave it another 15 minutes.

 

 

I gave it another 15 minutes to take it to 45 minutes in the smoker. I gave it another brush of glaze and cooked for 5 more minutes. I made sure the internal temperature was over 165 F and took the skewers off.

 

 

I served it with Easy Grilled Vegetable Brochettes (my next post), Deli style coleslaw and rice.

 

 

The Verdict

 

I love hoisin with its deep rich sweet flavour. However, it can overpower chicken. I added the lemon juice to give it some brightness and the soy and chili to lighten the sweetness a bit. It turned out great. Best of all, SWMBO was happy.

Disco,

 

Another very tasty looking meal...and you pleased your Mrs, which is always a bonus! I like hoisin sauce myself...use it in a couple of Chinese stir fry recipes I make occasionally.  Your recipe looks and sounds very good...I'll be saving that to try myself!

 

Thanks for sharing this recipe...POINT!
