So it was my intention to make my usual hoisin sau
ce skewers, where I mix premade hoisin sauce, brown sugar and soy sauce to brush over skewers...I went into the cabinet to get the ingredients and lo and behold: no hoisin. I went looking online and found a recipe at CD Kitchen for hoisin sauce so I gave it a whirl. Boy was I glad I did...these were delicious! Like satay...very peanutty and good. Add more spice if you like...ours were tame due to the kids.
4 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons peanut butter or black bean paste
1 tablespoon honey or molasses or brown sugar
2 teaspoons white vinegar
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
2 teaspoons sesame oil
20 drops chinese hot sauce, habenero or jalepeno
1/8 teaspoon black pepper.
Mix all of the above and pour over cubed chicken breast.
Thread chicken on to skewers...
Grill until juices run clear...
