Ground Chicken Hoisin

This recipe for Ground Chicken Hoisin is one of those recipes that I forget how much I like until I make it.  Then I wonder why I don’t make it more often!   It’s ready in 20 minutes  low in fat, and the rich complex  sweet, spicy, umami sauce is out of this world.

A little sweet from the Hoisin and Mirin  a little heat from Sambal Olek (garlic chile sauce), and a little pop of freshness from the garlic and fresh ginger.  What’s not to like?

How do you make Ground Chicken Hoisin?

Don’t worry it’s not complicated to make, and did I mention it only uses one pan?  Bonus!

  1. Brown the ground chicken in the hot wok or skillet
  2. Add onion and saute a few minutes
  3. Add sauce ingredients to the chicken and onion, stir until sauce thickens
  4. Serve !

How do you serve Ground Chicken Hoisin?

Once the Ground Chicken Hoisin is cooked, you have a few options for serving.

  1. Inside lettuce cups; butter, romaine or iceberg are all good options.
  2. On top of steamed rice, jasmine or long grain both work well
  3. On a bun; like a sloppy joe
  4. In a Wonton or Spring roll wrapper, deep fried and delicious

Weekly meal prep

I love recipes that are prepaheadable and require very little work to get dinner on the table during the week.  Ground Chicken Hoisin would make an excellent addition to your weekly meal prep.

On the day of prep, simply put all the sauce ingredients into a small mason jar with a lid.  On cooking day just shake up the sauce, brown the chicken and dinner is served.   If you’re like me and Menu Plan and Meal Prep every week, check out my collection of Prepaheadable recipes for some delicious new options to try.

    So good! I made this for lunch today and served it on wraps. I couldn’t find ground chicken, so I subbed ground turkey. If you’re looking for an easy, healthy dish to delight your tastebuds, this is it!
