Chinese Barbecue Chicken with Garlic Sauce

I made this several days ago and when John took the first bite he immediately said "This is GREAT!" Normally I have to ask him his opinion, so an immediate response told me it was a winner. It was tasty and honestly doesn't have a typical Chinese food flavor at all. It was a little spicy but very delicious. If you are looking for a new way to make chicken give this a shot.

For barbecued chicken:

1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
1 tablespoon ketchup
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 teaspoons minced garlic
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts

For garlic sauce:

2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 1/2 tablespoons minced garlic
1 teaspoon rice vinegar
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon chili garlic sauce

1- Combine the ingredients for the barbecue sauce. Allow the chicken to marinade for at least an hour- more if possible.
2- Grill the chicken.
3- While it is grilling, combine the ingredients for the garlic sauce, set aside.

  1. This chicken sounds amazing with this chinese flavor and even better with the garlic sauce. YUM!
