Don’t wait for summer to make these spicy hoisin glazed chicken skewers served with broccoli and snow peas! You can bake them up easily in the oven!
My stepdad used to say that I could eat chicken 24/7 and he was right. Chicken graces our dinner table a minimum of at least three days a week, and I’ll eat the leftovers for lunch the next day.
And why shouldn’t I be crazy for this popular poultry!
It’s low in calories, a terrific source of protein, and quite tasty if you ask me.
I’m particularly partial to serving it with Asian-inspired flavors like these tenders that I flattened with a mallet (a wonderful way to release tension if you asked me), and marinated in a sticky hoisin sauce.
After a quick bake in the oven, we served our chicken skewers with vegetables stir fried in that same sweet hoisin sauce spiked with a little chili garlic to add kick.
If you ask me, being chicken crazy isn’t such a bad thing when dinner tastes like this.
Happy, healthy cooking!
