This recipe can also be prepared vegan using a tofu style chickn and coconut sugar or using real chicken. My family is not vegan but I am, so I make both.
Mahagony chicken is my kid’s favorite chicken. I simplify a recipe that is online so that it is easy to make. Hoison sauce is a rich bbq style sauce with a really deep flavor, my local grocery sells 4 ounces for $5 but you can buy it online cheaper.
Cut chicken into strips
Combine all ingredients except chicken in a small bowl to make the sauce. Reserve about 1/4 cup for basting.
Place bowl of sauce and chicken in a Ziploc bag and place in fridge for at least 30 minutes.
Remove chicken from fridge and place in baking dish. Cook for 10 minutes then remove and baste with reserved sauce.
Place back in oven for an additional 15 minutes. Remove and serve over rice.
Here is my version of the recipe:
4 chicken breasts deboned and cut into bite sized pieces (or any tofu made in chckn style)
1 clove of garlic, minced
5 tablespoons dark brown sugar (half if you don’t like sweet food)
3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1/3 cup hoison sauce
2 tsp basalmic vinegar
Mix ingredients for sauce. Reserve about ½ cup for basting. Place the remaining sauce into a zip lock bag and add chicken. Marinate for at least 15 minutes, but up to 2 hours. Bake chicken at 375 for 10 minutes then remove and baste. Return chicken to oven for an additional 15 minutes. If you cut your pieces small, they may need a little less time, or if they were cold they may need a few more minutes. Serve over rice.
