Total Time

55 mins


  • 900g chicken pieces (drumsticks, thighs and breast pieces)
  • 1 sachet Blue Dragon Szechuan Pepper Stir Fry Sauce
  • 2 tsp Blue Dragon Sesame Oil
  • 1 tbsp Blue Dragon Hoisin Sauce
  • 1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 1tbsp sesame seeds
  • 2 tbsp coriander, finely chopped


  1. Take chicken pieces and slash with a knife to make incisions, then rub with the stir fry sauce, sesame oil and hoisin sauce. Set aside to marinate 1-2 hours if time permits
  2. Heat your BBQ or broiler to medium high heat. Place chicken on a tray and place on the grill, cook 40-45 minutes, turning occasionally, and baste with any leftover marinade as the chicken cooks
  3. Place chicken on a large serving platter, scaller over chilli, sesame seeds and coriander and serve immediately


Large beef steaks or other robust cuts of meat (e.g. pork chops) also work really well with this flavourful marinade. The chicken is cooked when it has changed in colour and firm to the touch. If in doubt, pierce the thickest part, clear juices should run.
