Baked Hoisin Chicken

May 5, 2023

Delicious, moist chicken marinated in Hoisin sauce and baked to perfection. This is a simple recipe that even a non-cook can execute.

Delicious Chicken in Hoisin Sauce

In my pantry, hoisin sauce is one of my favorites. Soy sauce, oyster sauce, and hoisin sauce are three of the most commonly used sauces in Chinese cuisine.

Unlike soy sauce and oyster sauce, Hoisin sauce brings an entirely new flavor to a dish’s flavor profile. Sweer and savory at the same time, it’s a delicious concoction.

Overall, a small amount of Hoisin sauce enhances the flavor of a dish significantly. I’m in love with it.

The sauce in this baked hoisin chicken makes it juicy and flavorful while keeping the meat tender. Trying it out right now, in the comfort of your own home, is the most critical step.

Asian Hoisin Chicken

Cooking a silky, smooth, and tender Hoisin chicken breast was one of my previous recipes. This baked Hoisin chicken is even better when the drumsticks are roasted in the oven.

The result is a deliciously nutritious baked meal right at your fingertips.

I adore chicken with Asian flavors, such as ginger garlic baked chicken and honey lemongrass baked chicken, both of which are hugely popular and delicious.
