Blackened Szechuan Chicken

Whoops-a-daisy, I just realized I published the last post without a recipe.

Blackened Szechuan Chicken


¼ cup soy sauce
¼ cup szechuan stir-fry sauce
Juice of 1 small orange and a couple of teaspoons of zest
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 garlic cloves, chopped
4 tablespoons fresh rosemary leaves
2 chicken breasts with ribs


  • Combine first six ingredients in a small bowl. Pour 2/3 of the marinade into a gallon size resealable plastic bag, add chicken and turn to coat. Marinate chicken in refrigerator for a minimum of 4 hours. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade.

  • Pre-heat BBQ to low.

  • Drain and discard marinade from chicken. Grill chicken, ribs side down, directly on the bars, basting occasionally with reserved marinade. Cook times will vary according to size of chicken breasts, and outside temps, so just grill to desired doneness, and until juices run clear.

Looks delish. Can't wait to try this as we do enjoy ethnic foods. Thanks for popping by and leaving the quote. I have added it to my fishing list of quotes :))

Ha ha! Looks great!

Last week I posted sweet potato bread pudding without the sweet potato!

This looks so great. Great idea to do a Szechuan sauce but then barbecue it.

Paula said...

Ooooh, well done Jan! Aren't zip lock bags the greatest invention? This recipe would be a hit in my house. It kind of reminds me of an asian inspired hot wing. What did you think of the orange juice and zest? This is right up my alley!

Thanks for all your lovely comments, I always appreciate them.

Paula, I thought the orange juice worked well in this dish. This chicken is so moist and absolutely awash with flavor, I love it.
