Hoi Sin Chicken

I don’t know about you, but I adore a good Chinese Fakeaway. Since starting our slimming journey long gone are the days of wanting a rather calorific Chinese, when you can make dishes like this Hoi Sin Chicken! Ready in the time that it would take for our local takeaway to deliver.sponsored-post

For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb 👍

You’ve probably looked at the ingredients, and thinking how the hell does that make Hoi Sin sauce. I was equally as surprised! We’ve been testing out some recipes, and trying new ingredients such as the miso paste.

This isn’t how you’d make a traditional Hoi Sin sauce, you’d usually add honey and sesame oil. Both of which are high in calories. This isn’t Hoi Sin sauce in the sense that you might be familiar. It’s not sticky and thick.

I think you’ll be surprised by how close it tastes to the Hoi Sin sauce you know and love. Yet at a fraction of the calories.

What is the magic ingredient in this Hoi Sin Chicken?

One of the ingredients to give this sauce depth and flavour is something called PB2. It’s a powdered, de-fattened peanut butter that you mix with water to form a paste. It tastes just like the real thing, and is much lower in calories compared to regular peanut butter.

PB2 is 100 % natural, with no added nasties and you can use it to make dishes such as our Chicken Satay. It makes a massive difference. You can get it via Amazon, and some supermarkets have started to sell PB-fit which is similar.

The other ingredient to give this sauce the wow factor is Miso Paste. Made from soybeans. A little goes a long way! You can find it in the international foods aisle in any major supermarket except Morrisons. For some reason they don’t stock it. If you need to, you can also get it from Amazon.

We use a granulated sweetener with the same weight and sweetness as sugar.

There are lots of high quality granulated sweeteners available from the supermarket, such as Canderel Sugarly, and Natvia.

If you are using a powdered sweetener, then please check how it compares to sugar. In some cases you’ll need to use less, as powdered sweeteners weigh less.

What are you waiting for, dig out that wok and get cooking!!
