Oven-Barbecued Asian Chicken

Your rating: None Average: 3.9 (83 votes)

This Asian “barbecued” chicken made in a casserole dish is truly finger-licking good! You can make this with 2 bone-in chicken breasts (about 12 ounces each) instead of thighs and drumsticks, if you prefer. Remove the skin and cut each chicken breast in half on the diagonal to get 4 portions about equal in weight. Serve with sautéed chard and whole-grain rice pilaf.

Easy & Tasty!

Ive been making this dish for the last year and my family loves it! Easy weeknight dinner with lots of flavour. I tend to kick up the garlic & ginger and only bake my chicken thighs for about 30-40 mins depending on their size. Great easy weeknight meal

Great taste and easy to prepare

Doubled this recepie with only chicken breasts and it was great. The presentation for a dinner party looks very good on a big white platter. Added a bit more onion than the recipe called for and cooked it only about 40 minutes instead of an hour. I think the recipe with thighs and legs would be even time!

Wonderful balance of flavors
Not actually gluten-free

I did a search for gluten-free and this recipe popped up. It looked tasty enough, but 2 of the ingredients are definitely NOT gluten-free: hoisin sauce and soy sauce. It's easy enough to find gluten-free soy sauce, but not so much with the hoisin sauce. I would not suggest this recipe if you have any sort of gluten intolerance, unless you're going to alter it and use gluten-free ingredients.

Unique Chicken Dish

I loved the unique taste of this asian barbeque sauce. If I make it again I won't add the scallions at the end. The strong onions took away from the other complex flavors.

good taste
easy, cheap, and tasty

Right balance between sweet, savory, and spicy, this meal was a hit! I served it over whole wheat couscous with a side of steamed asian vegetable medly.

small list of ingredients, simple, reheats well, inexpensive
