Grilled Chicken with Hoisin-Spice Sauce

Recipe printed from Jenn's Food Journey, adapted from the Food Network Magazine
- Serves 2 -

1/4 cup hoisin
1/8 - 1/4 teaspoon Chinese five spice (five spice packs a pretty good flavor punch, start off with 1/8 tsp, taste, and add more - you can always add more, you can't take away!!)
1 teaspoon honey
1 teaspoon rice vinegar
1 teaspoon mirin (if you don't have mirin just use more rice vinegar)
2 teaspoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon water
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts


In a bowl, mix together all the ingredients except the chicken together until well combined. Reserve 2 tablespoons of the sauce and set aside. Rinse chicken, pat dry, and place in a shallow dish. Spread the remaining hoisin mixture over the chicken, cover, and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

Preheat grill to 375 degrees F. Oil the grill grates and place the chicken directly over the fire. Grill 8-10 minutes on each side or until chicken reaches an internal temperature of 160-165 degrees F. Remove from grill and allow to rest for 3-5 minutes before serving. Serve with reserved sauce and enjoy!
