Carolina BBQ Chicken – TEST

Ingredients

1 pound Do Good Chicken boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into bite-size pieces


1 tablespoon olive oil 1 tablespoon Creole mustard (like Zatarain’s)


1 tablespoon honey


½ teaspoon salt


¼ teaspoon coarse ground black pepper


1 cup Carolina BBQ sauce (store-bought or homemade, see recipe below)


¼ cup pickled mustard seeds or wholegrain mustard


1 tablespoon chives

Like most popular, regional barbecue sauces, Carolina BBQ sauce has a taste distinctly all its own. Instead of the typical ketchup and molasses bases you’ll find in a lot of barbecue sauces, Carolina BBQ sauce is vinegar- and mustard-based. This makes for a thick-and-tangy sauce, with just a hint of sweet and sour.

Directions

Marinating Chicken:

  1. Place first 6 ingredients in a small mixing bowl and mix thoroughly.
  2. Cover and place in the refrigerator and allow to marinate for 1 hour.

Baking Chicken

  1. Heat a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Add oil to pan and immediately add marinated breast bites.
  3. Cook for 2-3 minutes then turnover and continue to cook for 2-3 more minutes or until fully cooked.
  4. Remove from the pan and place cooked bites in a small mixing bowl.
  5. Add BBQ sauce to the bowl and gently toss the bites with to coat on all sides with sauce.
  6. Pile bites in a bowl or on a small plate.
  7. Dollop pickled mustard seeds or wholegrain mustard over the top of breast bites, sprinkle them with chives, and serve.

Tips:

• Shaoxing is a Chinese rice wine typically used for cooking. It can be substituted with dry sherry or mirin (a sweet Japanese cooking wine).

• For extra heat, drizzle Chinese-style chili oil over top of the dish just before serving.

• Substitute 1 of the red bell peppers with a green bell pepper for variety, if desired.
