Hoisin Glazed Chicken Cups for the Holidays


This post is part of sponsored recipe development on behalf of Lee Kum Kee. All opinions are the contributors’ own.

The holiday season is here, and that means lots of entertaining. Work parties, neighborhood parties, get-togethers with both sides of the family and more.

And with all of that, means a lot of time in the kitchen and lots of appetizers.

This holiday season, I’m collaborating with Lee Kum Kee to put a tasty twist on traditional holiday fare.

We eat a ton of Asian food throughout the rest of the year, so why not incorporate it during the holidays as well?

Five Spicy Pork Lo Mein has been a staple in our house for 15 years. Between the five spice powder and with Lee Kum Kee Hoisin Sauce, it is pretty incredible.

Lee Kum Kee Hoisin Sauce is an irresistibly delicious sweet sauce made from selected spices, soybeans and sweet potatoes, and it turns that lo mein, and these fantastic, poppable chicken cups, into something truly special.

When you are making Asian food at home, getting the flavors right is key! Lee Kum Kee offers more than 200 authentic Asian sauces and condiments that use only premium-quality, non-GMO ingredients.

I have to say the sesame oil pretty much makes a meal. It is the best, most flavorful sesame oil I have ever used.

These hoisin glazed chicken cups come together in just minutes. You really can’t get much easier.

All you have to do is sauté the chicken in a little sesame oil, garlic, and ginger. Then add hoisin sauce and let it simmer for a couple minutes to let it all come together.

Spoon into hot phyllo cups and you are done! I topped the hoisin glazed chicken with sesame seeds and chives, but that is purely optional.

You could even turn this into dinner by doubling the chicken, the sauce, and adding some veggies. Serve over rice and you can turn this fun appetizer into an easy weeknight meal.

We are always making Asian inspired recipes at home. Like these Asian Noodle Bowls with Pork. And I love that Lee Kum Kee makes it easy for people to enjoy authentic, restaurant-quality Asian tastes and flavors at home.

This holiday season, branch out of the normal and put an Asian twist on your appetizers!
