Hoisin Chicken with Steamed Vegetables from www.hartleyconfections.com

8 years ago

This chicken dish is a simple and quick recipe that you can easily
prepare for you and a friend in 30 minutes tops! I don’t know how
hectic your weekday schedule is but I know mine is pretty busy and this dish is perfect for a last minute dinner.

I happen to really enjoy preparation of this recipe because of how
incredibly easy and fast it is. It’s fairly common for me to multi-task in the kitchen and this dish
complements a busy lifestyle quite well. I recommend marinating the
chicken in the Hoisin sauce, or other Asian-inspired marinade you might
have on hand, in advance. Most chicken tastes better when it has
marinated for a longer period of time, so feel free to let the chicken
marinate in the refrigerator while you are prepping your vegetables. I
usually tend to throw in whatever vegetables or spices I have on hand
to make the dish a little more interesting and spicy, since you all
know by now how much I enjoy spicy foods. Some of the ingredients I’ve
added in the past are chopped garlic, sesame seeds, sesame oil,
sriracha, and hot chili flakes.

I hope you enjoy this recipe and experiment with the ingredients you
have laying around YOUR kitchen! Unfortunately I was unable to post the
pictures of this dish today but check back tomorrow for photos.
