  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) hoisin sauce
  • 1/4 cup (50 ml) honey
  • 2 tbsp (30 ml) lime juice
  • 2 tbsp (30 ml) soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) minced ginger
  • 4 cloves garlic, 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 zip-top bag and pour in the remaining hoisin mixture. Marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes or in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours.

Select the "Poultry" program 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 the colour 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.

Tips: Serve with stir-fried vegetables over cooked rice. Try the sauce mixture on boneless skinless salmon fillets using the "Fish/Seafood" program.
