Hoisin-Glazed Grilled Chicken Breasts


This is a tasty Grilled Chicken Recipe. Recipes for grilling are often low fat because it doesn't require cooking oil so it's a great way to cook healthily.



Chicken breasts work particularly well as they are a thin, lean cut of meat. This is an advantage because they cook through before they dry out.

This chicken dish is served with cabbage slaw salad.

Serves 4 - Cooking time 40 minutes

In a bowl, whisk together the hoisin sauce, soy sauce and1 teaspoon of the vinegar to make the glaze. Transfer 2 tablespoons of the glaze to a larger bowl and stir in the remaining vinegar. Add the cabbage peppers, spring onions and coriander and toss together. Cover and refridgerate.

Pour 1 tablespoon of the remaining glaze into a small bowl and set aside.Now brush the grilling chicken with what's left of the glaze and start grilling the chicken while brushing with the glaze occassionally until cooked.

It should take about 8 minutes. Spoon some of the remaining glaze over the top of the chicken breasts and serve with the slaw.
