the Ingredients

20151023095400 Row Poultry 31


  • 240 milliliters hoisin sauce
  • 6 scallions, finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons peeled, minced fresh ginger
  • 3 large garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 tablespoons toasted sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons unseasoned rice wine vinegar
  • 6 boneless, skinless chicken thighs, each about 115 grams, excess fat removed and meat cut into 4-centimeter pieces
  • 445 grams broccoli crowns, cut into 2.5-centimeter florets
  • 20 small shiitake mushrooms, stems removed
  • Vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds

Special Equipment

  • metal or bamboo skewers
  • perforated grill pan


  • 01 In a large bowl whisk the marinade ingredients. Transfer 120 milliliters of the marinade to small bowl and set aside to use as a glaze when the food comes off the grill. Add the chicken pieces to the remaining marinade in the large bowl and toss to coat well. Cover and refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours.
  • 02 If using bamboo skewers, soak them in water for at least 30 minutes.
  • 03 Prepare the grill for direct cooking over medium heat (180° to 230°C) and preheat the grill pan.
  • 04 Thread the chicken pieces onto skewers, leaving space between each piece. Brush the chicken with any leftover (not reserved) chicken marinade from the large bowl.
  • 05 Toss the broccoli and mushrooms with enough oil to lightly coat them and season evenly with the salt and pepper. 
  • 06 Brush the cooking grates clean. Grill the chicken over direct medium heat,with the lid closed, until firm to the touch and opaque all the way to the center, 8 to 12 minutes, turning once or twice. At the same time, spread the broccoli and mushrooms in a single layer on the grill pan and cook over direct medium heat until crisp-tender, about 6 minutes, turning occasionally. Remove from the grill as they are done. Immediately brush the chicken and vegetables with the reserved 120 milliliters glaze. Top with the sesame seeds and serve warm with steamed brown rice, if desired.
