Spicy Asian Chicken with Citrus was a wonderful meal using ingredients I found on the opening day of our local Farmer’s Market in my hometown. I served this chicken with Israeli Couscous with Lemon and Roasted Baby Squash with Fresh Herbs.

Spicy Asian Chicken with Citrus Recipe:
Spicy Asian Chicken with Citrus Recipe
1/2 cup low-sodium soy sauce
6 to 8 cloves fresh garlic, small dice
2 teaspoons hot chili garlic sauce
4 teaspoons hoisen sauce
2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil
1/2 cup fresh-squeezed orange juice
Zest and juice from 2 limes
1 (3 to 4 pound) chicken, cut up into eight pieces
Fresh cilantro (reserve for garnish)
In a bowl, make the marinade by combining soy sauce, garlic, chili garlic sauce, hoisen sauce, sesame oil, orange juice, and lime zest and juice with a whisk; place mixture into a zip-lock plastic bag
Add chicken pieces, lock bag, and massage marinade into chicken. Place bag (with chicken and marinade) on a plate, and put into the refrigerator overnight or all day.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Remove chicken from marinade to an oven-proof dish, pour marinade over the chicken, and bake approximately 1 hour or until the chicken registers an internal temperature of 160 degrees F. on your meat thermometer (juices will run clear when cut with the tip of a knife).
Makes 4 servings.
