Hoisin & lime BBQ chicken


Today I took the girls on a long walk  a couple of miles down the road to  “arts in the parks” where we made some fun  kid art and had a picnic in the shade. It was a lovely way to spend the afternoon but by the time I got home I was exhausted and hungry and I wanted chicken badly.

I have been craving BBQ for days but we don’t have a  grill and even if we did it’s nearing the triple digits here and sitting my an open flame sounds a bit like torture.  I came up with this yummy faux BBQ recipe that really did taste like it came off the grill and I am pretty in love with the sweet and sour flavor.

With only a handful of ingredients and a short cooking time this is a great recipe for on the go or on those days when you just want to eat without having to do a lot of work. This one is definitely going in my favorite recipes folder and will probably be a popular meal this summer. Serve it up with some coconut rice and a tall glass of black iced tea, yum!

What you need

  • All natural hoisin sauce
  • cilantro
  • 3 limes, zest of 1 of the limes
  • sesame seeds
  • Chicken drumsticks
  • 4 tbsp coconut oil

How to make it

  • Generously slather the chicken  in hoisin sauce
  • place chicken in a baking pan and put the coconut oil in the pan with it
  • juice 2 limes  over chicken
  • sprinkle with zest & sesame seeds
  • cook chicken at 350 f0r  45 minutes
  • top with lime juice & cilantro
