grilled hoisin chicken with scallions
Seems I've been posting either poetry or food, which is basically what I've been up to lately. I'm always looking for a different twist on boneless skinless chicken breasts. This one is perfect for quick and easy summer grilling. Toss some sweet potato wedges and scallions on the grill, along with the chicken, and you've got a meal ready in less than 30 minutes. The musky sweet of the hoisin pairs perfectly with the sweet of the potatoes. You're gonna love it.
Heat grill to medium and brush boneless skinless chicken breasts with canola oil. Cut sweet potatoes into 1/2 inch wedges and toss with canola oil, sea salt and freshly ground pepper. Grill the chicken and potatoes for about 7-10 minutes each side. Brush chicken with bottled hoisin sauce, turning occasionally, the last few minutes of grilling. Toss scallions in canola, salt and pepper, add to grill the last five minutes. Remove all from grill. Sprinkle chicken and potatoes with sesame seeds, drizzle potatoes with sesame oil. Easy peasy.
