This recipe came out OUTSTANDING. I marinated chicken thighs and drumsticks overnight in a ziploc bag. After grilling the chicken under medium-low heat for about 20 minutes I brushed on a little Hoisin to finish. Highly recommended. Read More

This was yummy yummy! I had boneless chicken breast on hand and they worked wonderfully. Also I had already marinated them in Italian Dressing for about 2 hrs so I drained that off and added the Hoisin sauce for 2 more hrs of marinating and they turned out so good! Read More

Great idea! My luck with bone-in chicken on the grill is really awful so I just barely let my chicken kiss the grill and then moved it to the oven on 325 convection for 40 minutes. Turned out perfect juicy and yummy. Thanks! Read More

I always love it when a simple easy recipe turns out well. This created a very tasty moist piece of chicken. I used 4 boneless skinless breasts and 4 bone in skin on thighs. My breast was moist and I was informed that the thighs turned out well also. I marinated these on Friday morning with the intention of cooking them that evening...well a better offer came up so I ended up cooking them tonight. Just doesn't get any easier than this. Thanks for the recipe. Read More
