Hoisin and Honey Grilled Chicken

A long time ago... on this blog... I posted a recipe for Honey & Hoisin Trout.  It was DE-LIC-OUS!  So, I thought... it worked so well on the trout, why not try it out on my beloved chicken?  Other than not getting a really good picture of it, I am very pleased with the results.  It was sweet and savory and grilled to perfection.

Printable Recipe 
2 Tablespoons hoisin
1 1/2 Tablespoon honey
1 Tablespoon soy sauce
1/2 Tablespoon lime juice
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 large garlic clove, minced
2 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts

In a bowl, mix together everything except the chicken until well combined.  Rinse chicken and pat dry.  Place in resealable bag or shallow dish.  Pour marinade over the chicken, seal bag, and refrigerate for 2-4 hours.

Preheat grill to 375 degrees F.  Clean and oil grill grates.  Remove chicken from marinade and place on grill.  Grill for 6-10 minutes per side or until the chicken reaches an internal temperatures of 165 degrees F.  Remove from grill and serve.  Enjoy!

Looks really good Jen especially with the charred grill marks - I like a little of that black on my grilled chicken.

This recipe looks AMAZING! I just pinned it to try very soon. I adore a hoisin and honey sauce and I'd be willing to bet this was perfect.

I've got a bottle of Hoisin that is taking up space on the door of the fridge. I do believe I'll be trying this soon. Sounds great. I'm thinking wings or thighs. Yum.

I have thighs to do tonight, might give this a go.
