    This is much adapted from a Ming Tsai duck recipe. It is delicious! Times are estimates (does not include time for marinating).

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Combine ginger, garlic, half of scallion, soy sauce, sake, hoisin sauce and tea.
    2. 2
      Reserve at least half of this for your sauce, adding the brown sugar to it. Use other half to marinate chicken for at least an hour, in a ziploc bag in the frig (this cuts down on the amount of marinade needed).
    3. 3
      Remove chicken and barbecue (or bake) until cooked through.
    4. 4
      Pour reserved sauce into a small pot and bring to a boil. Add cornstarch and water mixture and cook for a couple minutes, until slightly thickened. Serve chicken topped with reserved scallions. I paired this with brown rice and cucumber salad, but any veggie would probably go great with it.

      We enjoyed this, I doubled the recipe very successfully, and served it over steamed rice. I did cut the chicken into bite size pieces, preferring to serve it that way. Lacking sake, I used dry sherry instead. I used rooibos tea for the tea, and I added some vegetables, namely one zucchini, cut into batons, a red pepper, finely sliced, and an onion, ditto. I added the onion with the chicken, cooked in my wok, and added the other vegetables a few minutes later, to retain their crispness. Good flavour and generous quantities, I had enough left for lunch today and I assure you, just as yum!! Thanks, Maito!

      This was easy and very tasty. The chicken came out very moist (I used chicken thighs). I made sure to use very little of the mixture for the marinade and therefore had enough sauce. This would also be terrific as a stir fry. Just slice chicken and add onions, peppers, etc. once the chicken is cooked. Pour the sauce over, stir, and heat through. Made for PRMR.

      This was good, but didn't make anyone jump up and down. I found the ginger to be a bit too strong and the chicken didn't taste like much more then that and the soy. There wasn't much sauce left - maybe I put too much in the marinade, but it didn't seem like there would be enough for that with less, so I ended up adding some Yoshida sauce to it; I also skipped thickening the sauce so it would go further. I cooked the chicken on the grill and served it with steamed rice and broccoli. Made for the Comfort Cafe July 09
