Delicious Chicken in Hoisin Sauce
Hoisin sauce is one of my favorite sauces in my kitchen pantry. When it comes to Chinese recipes, there are three sauces that are staples: soy sauce, oyster sauce and hoisin sauce.
While I love the savory notes of soy sauce and oyster sauce, Hoisin sauce brings a completely new flavor profile to a dish. It’s savory, sweet and rich at the same time.
To sum up, a little bit of Hoisin sauce adds a lot of depth to the overall taste of any dish. I love it.
This baked hoisin chicken features the best sauce, making the chicken extremely juicy and savory while remaining tender as well. Most importantly, you have got to try it today at home!

Don't discard the juice seeping out from the chicken. The sauce is extremely flavorful and great with rice.
