This is an Asian dish that I've had for a long time, and it can be either an appetizer or main dish when served with rice. It originally was supposed to deep fried in small foil packets, but I found that way too messy. Grilling it is oh so yummy! The longer it marinates, the better it is. Personally I prefer it to marinade for 2 days.

Directions

  1. Whisk together the sugar, black bean sauce, parsley, green onions, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, sherry, sesame oil, vegetable oil, ginger, garlic, and five-spice powder in a bowl, and pour into a resealable plastic bag. Add the chicken, coat with the marinade, squeeze out excess air, and seal the bag. Marinate in the refrigerator overnight, up to 2 days, turning occasionally.
  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil the grate. Remove the chicken from the marinade, and shake off excess. Discard the remaining marinade. Weave the chicken tenders onto skewers.
  3. Cook the skewered chicken on the preheated grill until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, turning occasionally, about 10 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

Wow! This is a keeper! I made it true to the recipe - great taste and the hubby gave this 10 stars. I have more marinating in the refrigerator and am going to do a stir fry with it tomorrow. I am sure it will be great. I did skewers of chicken and skewers of vegetables and rice. Perfect dinner for us. Thank you!

This is my recipe. It tastes like the chicken wings you would get at a Chinese buffet. The only thing different that I sometimes do is add a heaping teaspoon of Ground Ginger instead of fresh. Both are great! Enjoy!
