      This was great! I marinated for 1 1/2 days, then strained the leftover marinade and reduced to make a BBQ sauce which I basted with about 5 minutes before pulling off of the grill. I was a little leery of the recipe when I pulled the hens out of the marinade, as they were a really unappetizing purple color. However, as they grilled, they turned a beautiful mahogany color. All three of us really enjoyed this meal, including the leftovers I had for lunch the next day.

      Loved the Asian flavors in this. I marinated these for 2 days which really made them tender and soak up more of the hoisin flavor. We also boiled the marinade for about 3 minutes which made for a nice sauce over the chicken and some rice. Thanks Sharon.
