  • Combine hoisin sauce, soy sauce, honey, sesame oil, ginger, garlic, and five-spice powder in a bowl to create the glaze.

  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.

  • Grill chicken, covered, turning once, until lightly browned, 4 to 6 minutes. Reduce heat to low. Continue cooking, covered and turning and brushing with the glaze every 5 minutes, until chicken is no longer pink in the middle, an additional 15 to 20 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Five-spice powder is a prepared seasoning that often includes star anise, cloves, cinnamon, fennel seeds, and pepper. It can be found in the spice or Asian food section of the grocery store.
