- Hoisin sauce
- Dark Chinese soysauce
- Garlic powder
During the week I don’t feel like cooking most of the time. Especially now during this hot summer. So I got the idea of cooking some food in bulk during the weekend. I bought 2kg of boneless chicken thighs from a local Turkish supermarket. 9 euro’s for 2kg, way cheaper than chicken breast and much more succulent.
I split the chicken thighs into two plastic freezerbags. I made two types of marinade. One asian style and one mediterranean style. Might post the mediterranean one tomorrow. It’s still cooking.
This recipe is mainly an easy “just throw it together” thing. In a small bowl I combined 3 tbs Japanese soysauce, 2 tbs dark Chinese soysauce (not to much it’s really strong), 1.5 tbs hoisin sauce, 3 tbs ketchup, a sprinkling of garlic powder and about 1/2 inch of ginger (I keep a supply of chopped ginger in the freezer). Pour the marinade into the bag with the chicken and knead the bag to coat the chicken. Leave to marinate in the fridge for a couple of hours.
Spread the chicken into a baking tray with a high edge, it will release some juices. Cook at 190 Celsius/375 Fahrenheit for about an hour.
Such an easy, but delicious dish. We ate this with just some steamed rice and poured some of the juices over the rice. You could try this recipe with some chinese rice wine into the marinade, chili(sauce) or some fresh garlic.
