Ancho Chili and Hoisin Chicken

I saw a recipe for Hoisin Sriracha Chicken and thought “this looks lovely, I’ll make it tonight”. Sadly we were out of Sriracha sauce but did have ancho chili paste. So I used that instead.

And thus Ancho Chili and Hoisin Chicken was born. The spicy and vibrant ancho chili paste paired perfectly with hoisin flavours. The dish was completed with a tasty side of peppers stir fried in toasted sesame oil with a little pineapple juice.

Enjoy a delicious evening meal at home with this simple recipe.

Recently rain stopped play on a planned al fresco roast chicken. A lot of rain, and high winds. So I used the oven indoors. Turns out that BBQ rubs work with everyday kitchen cooking.

There’s a world of flavour waiting for you to discover. Let’s go explore it …
