Hoisin BBQ Chicken with Tropical Salsa

hoisin barbecue chicken

Summer entertaining is here. Since I am not a meat eater, I am always looking for new ways to cook chicken. This Hoisin BBQ chicken with Tropical Salsa is one of the new ways I am cooking it this summer. The hoisin sauce is sweet yet spicy. The salsa has pineapple, mango, strawberries and red pepper. This one has just a hint of ginger but you could add cilantro or mint if you want to.

They are both easy recipes, one bowl each. Just a bit of chopping and stirring. You can make both earlier in the day, the Hoisin BBQ sauce could be made the day ahead.

I had thinly sliced chicken breasts on hand so I ended up skewering them. You could just cook whole breasts. The salsa would be great on fish too.

Hoisin BBQ Chicken with Tropical Salsa

1/4 cup hoisin sauce
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon sambal
1 teaspoon rice wine vinegar
1 clove garlic minced
1 teaspoon ginger minced
1 green onion chopped
2 boneless skinless chicken breast
Kosher salt
Freshly ground pepper

Mix all ingredients other than the chicken breast in a small bowl. Brush sauce on while cooking them on the grill. Serve a little of the sauce on the side along with the Tropical Salsa.
