The L’Arche Collective Kitchen in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, provides opportunities for people with and without disabilities to share life together. (See more of the story at “Collective Kitchen involves all abilities.”)
This recipe is from our new cookbook, One Big Table: Recipes from Friends of L’Arche Collective Kitchen. We are sharing the recipe for Hoisin glazed chicken because it is a simple meal, easily prepared ahead of time, to be shared with guests or at church potlucks. Enjoy!
A large bowl
½ cup hoisin sauce
2 tbsp. soy sauce
2 tbsp. rice vinegar
¼ tsp. salt and pepper
Whisk together ingredients
2 cloves garlic
1 small chunk ginger root
2 lbs. (about 900 g), bone-in chicken pieces
Turn on oven to 350.
Peel and mince garlic.
Mince ginger to make 1 tablespoon.
Add garlic and ginger to sauce mixture.
Add chicken; turn to coat.
Large roasting pan
1 tbsp. sesame seeds
Place chicken, bone side down in pan.
Pour remaining sauce over chicken.
Roast until golden crisp and juices run clear when chicken is pierced, about 45 minutes to 1 hour.
Sprinkle with sesame seeds before serving.
Tip: This recipe freezes well. Divide the chicken between two large Ziploc bags. Pour half the marinade into each bag and freeze for up to a month. Thaw in fridge and roast as directed.
