Sesame-Ginger Barbecued Chicken
cup plum sauce or sweet-and-sour sauce
cup water
tablespoons hoisin sauce
1 1/2
teaspoons sesame seeds, toasted if desired
teaspoon grated fresh ginger or 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
clove garlic, minced
teaspoon Asian chile sauce or several dashes bottled hot pepper sauce
skinless, boneless chicken breast halves and/or thighs
Hot cooked rice noodles
Cooked sugar snap peas (optional)
Slivered green onions
Sesame seeds, toasted
  1. For sauce, in a small saucepan combine plum sauce, the water, hoisin sauce, the 1-1/2 teaspoons sesame seeds, the ginger, garlic, and Asian chile sauce. Bring to boiling over medium heat, stirring frequently; reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 3 minutes. Remove from heat.
  2. For a charcoal grill, grill chicken on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals for 12 to 15 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink (170 degrees F for breast halves, 180 degrees F for thighs), turning once halfway through grilling and brushing once or twice with some of the sauce during the last 5 minutes of grilling. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place chicken on grill rack over heat. Cover and grill as directed.)
  3. To serve, slice chicken and serve on top of rice noodles and, if desired, sugar snap peas. Sprinkle with green onions and additional sesame seeds. Reheat and pass the remaining sauce.
