Asian Barbecue Chicken
Filed under: Recipes
The kids are out of school and summer is finally here!!!! WOOHOO!!!!!!! Sorry I couldn’t contain my excitement any longer. It’s this time of year where I love to spend as much of my time running around outside with kids going to he pool, beach and hanging by the park. It’s also one of my favorite times grilling…
I always love to kick off our summer break with a grill fest. This year we wanted to kick it up a notch and make something real yummy. We decided on making some Asian Barbecue Chicken. Now you know that there is nothing sweeter then some yummy bbq but when you pair it up with some Asian seasonings it tops it off, right. This recipe is so easy and so delish, I paired it with some Stir-Fried Noodles.
Prepare a grill on high heat. While the grill is warming up prepare the chicken.
Start off with a whole chicken. Clean the chicken inside and out. Remove the kidney bag and all the other chicken parts from the inside of the chicken cavity. Pat dry with a clean paper towel.
Chop the chicken in half separating it equally.
Time to make the marinade.
- In a small bowl combine the vegetable oil, brown sugar, five-spice powder, salt, and pepper. Mix it together.
- Then pour that into a blender and add the ginger, garlic, hoisin sauce, honey, rice vinegar and sesame oil. Pulse until all is blended.
- Rub on the chicken and let sit for 15-30 minutes on counter covered.
- Reserve marinade, and grill skin-side down over direct heat until marked, about 10 minutes.
