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.

Excellent healthy chicken -- with the skin removed

I doubled the recipe to use it with a whole cut up chicken! Worked great. We don't have sriracha sauce, so I substituted half Louisiana hot sauce and half Slivovitz (90-proof plum brandy). Worked great! I am so hapy to find a baked chicken recipe that plans on removing the skin before cooking!

Easy, tasty and pretty!
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
