Broiled Sesame Ginger Chicken

“I think one of the secrets to cooking chicken quarters, or any other meat for that matter, is having a variety of spices and condiments in your arsenal.” Jodie Mo


2 – 2 ½ pounds chicken quarters

1⅓ cup sweet and sour sauce ( or plum sauce)

3 tablespoons hoisin sauce

2 tablespoons soy sauce

4 teaspoons honey

4 teaspoons water

1½ teaspoons sesame seed

1 teaspoon grated gingerroot (or ¼ teaspoon ground ginger, but you should really buy a “hand” 
of ginger and keep it in your freezer. It lasts forever)

¼ teaspoon Chinese Five Spice ( I only had Chinese 4 spice and it worked just fine: cloves, 
cinnamon, fennel seed, ginger)

1 clove garlic, minced

Several dashes hot sauce (optional)


Preheat broiler.

Place chicken skin side up on broiler pan.

Broil 4-5 inches from heat for 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, mix remaining ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil.

Reduce heat and simmer for 2 minutes.

Turn chicken, broil 5-15 minutes more or until chicken is no longer pink.

Brush with glaze, broil 2 minutes.

Flip chicken, brush with glaze, broil another 2 minutes.
