  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) hoisin sauce
  • 1/4 cup (50 ml) honey
  • 2 tbsp (30 ml) fresh lime juice
  • 2 tbsp (30 ml) soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) minced ginger
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Toasted sesame seeds
  • Sliced green onion


Whisk the hoisin with the honey, lime juice, soy sauce, sesame oil, ginger and garlic until well combined; transfer one half of the mixture to a microwave-safe bowl. Cook in the microwave, on high, for 60 to 90 seconds or until steaming; set aside.

Place the chicken in a resealable plastic bag and pour in the remaining hoisin mixture. Marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes or in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours.

Turn the grill on. Select the program Poultry and press OK. Lightly grease the cooking plates with cooking spray. Once the purple indicator light has stopped flashing, place the chicken on the grill and close the lid.

Cook until the indicator light has changed to red. Transfer the chicken to a cutting board. Slice the chicken and drizzle with the remaining warm hoisin mixture. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and green onions just before serving.
