  • 6 bone- in, chicken leg quarters (chicken legs with thighs attached) *you can substitute boneless breasts
  • 1/4 cup Hoisin sauce
  • 1/4 cup Barbecue sauce I use President's choice Gourmet BBQ sauce
  • 2 tbsp soya sauce
  • 1 tsp grated fresh¬†ginger *See Terri's Tip in text above
  • 1 tsp minced garlic



  • Preheat oven to 425  degrees F. Generously spray a baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
  • In a medium bowl, mix hoisin sauce, BBQ sauce, soya sauce, garlic and ginger together.
  • ** If you have skin on your chicken, you need to remove it by pulling it off. This is easy to do, even if you've never done it. You simply pull back on it and tear it off. 
  • Then pull it right off over the leg (you may have to trim it to get it all off) 
  • Trim any excess skin with a knife
  • Place in roaster/pan, the pour sauce over chicken.
  • Bake uncovered in centre of oven for 20 minutes. Turn chicken over and spoon pan juices over chicken.
  • Continue baking, occasionally spooning sauce from baking dish over chicken until chicken feels springy when pressed and chicken is cooked through - about 20 minutes.
  • Sprinkle with green onion and sesame seeds and serve.
