Hoisin Chicken Recipe

The weekend is finally here (well, almost). There has been so much going on that I’m sort of feeling a little overwhelmed. And I’ve been ill for a month or so which makes it even more unpleasant. Had to go hospital because of a colon issue and then I was down (and I still am) with a stubborn bacterial and sinus infection that refuses to go away.ย ?

Anyone has sinus problem too? Any home remedies to recommend? I’m really sick of not being able to breathe properly because of mucus blockage and also this facial pressure and bad headache are just driving me nuts. Two weeks of antibiotics and I’ve still not recovered entirely. ARGH.ย ? ?

Ok, nuff of my ranting.

Today, I’m making an oven-roasted chicken dish with hoisin sauce and honey. This combination is like a Chinese style BBQ sauce so I added spring onions and sesame seeds to lend a bit more fragrance.

Though I indicated the serving size would be good for 3-4 persons. I actually devoured the whole tray of chicken drumlets on my own, haha. Just couldn’t stop because the sauce was so finger-licking good. Yum.ย ? ? ?

Enjoy this recipe!
