Oriental Chicken


  • In a large bowl, take soya sauce, ginger and garlic paste, honey, pepper, five spices(if using), vinegar, red chilli sauce and oil and stir until well blended.
  • Coat the chicken pieces in this blend and marinade in the refrigerator for 2 hrs. or overnight, turning them occasionally. Drain the chicken pieces and keep the mixture aside.
  • Place the chicken pieces on a glass or ceramic platter.
  • Sprinkle 1 tbls of sesame seeds and cook high uncovered for 5 mins in microwave.
  • Turn the pieces over with the help of a spoon or fork and brush the remaining mixture. Sprinkle the remaining sesame seeds and cook on high for another 5-6 mins.
  • Let it stand for another 5 mins before removing from the microwave. Serve immediately.
  • Make an approximate 12-14 pieces. You can always reduce the amount of oil used to half tbls, if you wish so.
