We always have char sui pork in our house and on this instance i only had chicken available.... so why not try it with chicken right? and it was delicious! We used this char sui chicken in wraps and we all enjoyed it. I use a tiny bit of red food colouring as my kids get the wow factor from it being like the Chinese shop.
1 teaspoon Garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon Chinese five-spice powder
2 Tablespoons Honey
2 Tablespoons Hoisin sauce
1 1/2 Tablespoons Soy sauce
1 Tablespoon Tomato Sauce
1 teaspoons Sesame oil
dash Red Food Colouring (if wanted)
500g Chicken thighs
Wraps to serve
Lettuce, Carrot, Cheese, Sour cream to serve
Marinate the chicken: In a large bowl, stir together the garlic, five-spice powder, honey, hoisin, soy sauce, tomato sauce, sesame oil and food colouring if wanted. Remove 3 tablespoons and set aside for glazing the chicken. Add the chicken to the bowl, coating the pieces well. Cover with plastic wrap and marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes.
Lightly oil a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook for 6 to 10 minutes, turning several times, until cooked through.
During the last 2 minutes of cooking, when the chicken feels firm-ish, baste with the reserved marinade to freshen flavor and add sheen. Dice meat before serving. Add diced chicken into wraps with your selected toppings.
