  • 125 ml hoisin sauce
  • 3 tbsp runny honey
  • 2 tbsp (30 ml) fresh lime juice
  • 2 tbsp (30 ml) soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp finely grated ginger
  • 4 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Sunflower oil, for greasing
  • Toasted sesame seeds
  • 2 spring onions, sliced


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 and cool completely.

Place the chicken in a resealable plastic bag and pour in the remaining hoisin mixture. Marinate in the refrigerator for between 1 and 24 hours.

Turn the grill on. Select the Chicken programme and press OK. Once the purple indicator light has stopped flashing, place the chicken on the grill and close the lid. Discard marinade.

Cook until the indicator light has changed to red. Transfer the chicken to a cutting board. Slice the chicken and drizzle with the remaining warm hoisin mixture. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and spring onion just before serving.
