I was first introduced to using Hoisin sauce during one of the many Whole Foods cooking demos I have attended, where Chef Jesse prepared delicious Asian tofu tacos and I fell in love with the flavor of this sauce right away.
He mentioned that using Hoisin sauce as a “barbeque sauce” for chicken was also a delicious & easy way to add great flavor to ordinary chicken breasts.
So last night I finally gave it a try!
Simply marinated some chicken breasts from Whole Foods in about half the bottle of sauce for an hour or two. Then added to a hot pan, gave a crack of black pepper and let cook until done flipping once or twice.
The hoisin sauce caramelizes and gets so delicious… this was good!!!
All served up for her with a sweet potato topped w/ spicy hot salsa and some steamed broccoli (which was later dipped in ketchup, but we won’t go there haha).
For him, a cinnamon & butter sweet potato and broccoli topped with ham & swiss.
Gotta run, need to get through all my deliverables at work so I can get home to take care of The Man who is sick!!!
