Hoisin Wasabi Grilled Chicken

This perfect and wonderfully delicious marinade would also work as a dipping sauce or as a sauce for a stir fry (doubling, if not quadrupling the amounts, of course).  It is spicy and sweet and delicious.  Simple and easy to prepare... life doesn't get much better than that!

Printable Recipe 
1 Tablespoon hoisin sauce
2 teaspoons prepared wasabi
1/2 teaspoon soy sauce
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

Mix together the hoisin, wasabi, and soy sauce until well combined.  Place chicken in a resealable bag or shallow dish and pour marinade over it.  Cover/seal and place in refrigerator for 2-4 hours.

Preheat grill to 375 degrees F.  Clean and oil grill grates.  Remove chicken from bag and discard marinade.  Place chicken directly over the fire and grill for 6-10 minutes per side or until the chicken registers 160-165 degrees F internally.  Remove from grill and allow to rest for 4-5 minutes before serving.  Enjoy!

This puts me in a hungry mood. AND I just found a can of wasabi powder in the fridge last night.

This sounds very hot, but I bet Kevin would love it. I think his taste buds burned out years ago from all the hot sauce and peppers he's eaten. :-)

Looks delicious, Jenn. And I'll try it too, just so you know. :-)

I have a tube of wasabi paste in the fridge, but was at a loss as to what to do with it. A plan is beginning to form :-). Have a great day. Blessings...Mary
