    Hey Jude's Note:

    This is a terrific recipe that I found, and tweaked successfully, in Ken Hom's Quick and Easy Chinese Cooking. The original has double the amount of sesame oil but I feel a little of that goes a long way...double it if you wish. This can be served hot or cold. It's delicious! Prep time does not include 1 hour marinating time.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 whole chicken (about 3-3 1/2 lbs.)
    • 2 teaspoons salt



    1. 1
      Cut the chicken into quarters and rub each piece evenly with the salt.
    2. 2
      Combine the rest of the ingredients in a blender or food processor and puree them.
    3. 3
      Place the chicken in a resealable plastic bag and pour the marinade over.
    4. 4
      Squish around good so the marinade is evenly coating the chicken.
    5. 5
      Set aside to marinate at least 1 hour at room temperature, or refrigerate overnight.
    6. 6
      Preheat broiler, light a fire in an open gril or turn on your gas grill.
    7. 7
      When your chosen cooking method is hot, place the chicken on the grill and cook, over indirect heat, for about 45 minutes turning occasionally, or until meat is no longer pink near the joints.
    8. 8
      This is really good served with steamed jasmine rice and greens or stir-fried pea pods and mushrooms.
