I have missed cooking lately. We went on vacation 2 weeks ago to Kentucky with friends and had a great time. Then last week I was in Vegas for work. Vegas is not my favorite place, but the company was excellent and the food (thank you Mario Batali) was great, so I was able to try to overlook all the small children being drug through the casino’s!! Seriously, Vegas is not a family vacation spot! OK getting off soapbox before I really start ranting!
Asian Marinated Chicken with Asian Inspired BBQ
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1/4 cup soy sauce
3 TBLS Mild Sweet Chili Sauce (Maggi Taste of Asia)
1 TBLS hoisin sauce
1 tsp sesame seed oil
1/4 cup olive oil
1 TBLS chopped garlic
Take all wet ingredients and mix well. Pour over chicken and let sit for a good 3-4 hours (or while you are at work).
Remove chicken from marinade and grill till done.
Asian Inspired BBQ Sauce
1/4 cup Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ Sauce
1/4 cup rice vinegar
2 TBLS Sweet Chili Sauce (mild)
2 TBLS soy sauce
1 TSP ground fresh chili paste (hot)
1 TSP sesame seed oil
Mix all the above and start to taste… if you like things hot, before adding more be sure to taste and breath in after swallowing. The sweet chili sauce masks the heat and it will creep up. So taste and adjust to your taste!
Sorry I don’t have more pictures… it was so good and tasty that we gobbled it up so quick. Here’s a satisfied customer’s picture for the proof!
Actually I took the remainder of the sauce to work with some cold chicken and nearly licked the bowl clean. I am planning to make a huge batch and can it for later use, it is just that yummy!
SO glad to be back!
