Recipe #12 in our Chinese Lunar New Year Celebration series came from Ming Tsai’s book Blue Ginger.   It is a very simple marinade of hoisin and chilis.  You can easily double the recipe .

Ingredients:

  • 8 pieces chicken thighs or legs or combination of both
  • 2 cups hoisin sauce
  • 4 tbs sambal oelek or crushed chili pepper
  • 2 bunches scallion, chopped
  • 1 cup dry red wine
  • 1/2 cup minced garlic (yes, that’s half a cup but you can decrease if you want)
  • 1/4 cup minced ginger (yes, that’s quarter of  a cup and decrease it if you want)
  • 2 tsp ground black pepper
  • salt

Directions:

  1. Combine all ingredients in a glass bowl except chicken.  Mix.
  2. Add chicken and turn to coat. Cover and marinate for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight.
  3. Heat your outdoor grill or preheat the broiler. Spray grill with non-stick cooking spray.
  4. Grill or broil chicken until brown and the juices run clear, turning once, approximately 12 – 15 minutes.  Serve with salad or rice.

I just want my fork to have one bite from it. This picture is great! How can I stay without tasting it. But I wonder hoisin sauce. I’m not familiar with it. Is it possible to replace it with anything else? In my blog I have marinated lamb beef. Welcome visit it.
