Ginger-Lime Hoisin Chicken

This is by far Jeff’s most favorite recipe for grilled chicken!


  • 6 boneless skinless chicken thighs or 4 boneless skinless breasts
  • 1/4 cup of hoisin sauce
  • 1 tablespoon of grated lime rind
  • 1 tablespoon of freshly grated ginger or 1/2 teaspoon of powdered ginger
  • 2 teaspoons of sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons of soy sauce
  • 8 cloves of garlic, minced


  1. Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl. Add chicken and coat well.
  2. Transfer to zip lock bag. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  3. Position the oiled grill 4-6 inches above the flame. Remove the chicken from the marinade ensuring that it is well coated. Arrange the chicken on the rack.  
  4. Grill chicken breasts, turning  2-3 times until the chicken is no longer pink it the center (15-20 minutes). 
  5. Brush often with the reserved marinade. If using thighs, turn once, brush with marinade (5 minutes per side).
