If you value Asian food, you’ll go nuts over this Chinese Chicken! Made with similar Char Siu marinade because the popular Chinese Barbecue Pork (Char Siu), this recipe requires Asian staples you may curently have. BBQ it, pan fry, bake or broil/grill it. The smell if this is cooking is crazy!
If you’ve strolled through Chinese neighbourhoods, past Chinese BBQ shops using the bronzed, glistening ducks and Chinese Barbecue Pork hanging from hooks within the window dripping with sticky glaze, then your smell if this hits the new pan is going to be familiar.
As well as if you’re not acquainted with that smell, you’ll just know, you will be aware this is 100% lip smackingly scrumptious along with a total crowd pleaser.
This Chinese Chicken may be the chicken form of Chinese Barbecue Pork. The marinade is slightly adjusted to really make it more appropriate for chicken – mainly less sugar because there’s more area with chicken and so i discover the pork Char Siu marinade a little too sweet as well as simpler to prepare around the BBQ/stove without having to burn the marinade.
And That I even added the littlest drop of red food colouring allow it that warm reddish tinge that Chinese Barbecue Pork is really well-known for. (Entirely 100000% absolutely and completely optional )
And talking about optional – the skewers are totally optional too. I simply used them to behave a little different since it dawned on me which i tried the Thai Coconut Marinated Chicken lately that will look much the same once cooked. Plus, they’re handy for turning the chicken.
The flavors of the chicken is classic Chinese – it’s lovely depth of flavour, it’s sweet and savoury, along with a hint of Chinese Five Spice Powder flavour which makes this clearly Char Siu. This really is terrific cooked within the oven or broiled/grilled, but hands lower the easiest way is around the BBQ or stove. That caramelisation that you will get at first glance is simply gold. GOLD. – Nagi xx
