Oven Baked ChickenFillets
Hanging around grandma has its advantages- I pick up little tips and hints that one will not get otherwise. My grandmother makes the best bbq chicken wings. I recall being invited to bbqs as a teenager with special requests from my friends for my grandmother marinated wings!
She told me that 5 spice and honey are two main ingredients that cannot be missed. As for the quantity of each ingredient, erm... well, it's to your own "Feel". If you "feel" like more honey is needed, go ahead- it seems that you can't really go wrong with marinated chicken fillets unless you put heaps of salt instead of sugar (or vice versa!).
Oved Baked Chicken Fillets (serves 4)
600 grams of chicken fillets (Trimmed with bone in)
about 1/4- 1/2 cup of honey
2-3 tsp of 5 spice
2 generous tablespoons of oyster sauce
1 tablespoon of soya
generous sprinkle of ground black pepper
1 tsp of sesame oil
1 tsp of corn flour
chopped red onion
Marinate chicken overnight with all ingredients. Preheat oven to 200C. Put chicken fillet in a deep tray and scatter onion over it. Bake for around 45 mins to an hour.
Serve hot with rice and veges.
PS- I like to have sambal with it too!
