Hoisin BBQ Chicken

The temperatures are finally back to normal, so I didn't feel too bad about sending Craig outside to grill some chicken. I remembered I had an open jar of hoisin sauce in the fridge, so I decided to put something together using it (to be honest, I have no clue how long its been in there). It turned out pretty good!!

2 Tbsp Hoisin sauce
1 Tbsp Honey
½ Tbsp Rice wine vinegar
½ tsp Sesame oil

- Combine the salt, garlic powder, ground ginger, black pepper, five- spice powder and rub evenly on both sides of chicken.

- Combine the hoisin sauce, honey, rice wine vinegar, and sesame oil in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. In a small bowl, combine the cornstarch and cold water and stir until smooth. Add the cornstarch solution to the hoisin sauce, whisking for 1 minute, then remove from the heat.

- Grill the chicken, brushing frequently with hoisin glaze, until the juices run clear.

I think hoisin sauce lasts as long as twinkies. I've only ever used it for my stir fry recipe...but your chicken looks really good too.
