Expert Tips

Pierce the pieces of chicken with a fork before putting them on the grill to facilitate their cooking.

If you're like me and you love smoked foods, this recipe is sure to become one of your favorites. This dish is perfect for those of us who don't have very much experience with this technique, since we'll only need a few common kitchen tools to make it happen. A wok and a grill will do the work of the oven, and a few green tea leaves can replace the traditional firewood. It's that easy to bring the aroma of green tea to your chicken. I dare you to try it!

You can use chicken wings, breasts, or thighs, or pieces of duck.

Directions

  • 1 Mix the honey with the garlic, ginger and soy sauce in a deep bowl.
  • 2 Add the pieces of chicken and coat them completely with the mixture.
  • 3 Cover the bowl completely and let marinate for 20 minutes in the fridge. Ideally, it should be left overnight.
  • 4 In the meantime, cover the surface of the wok with aluminum foil. Be sure to use 2 layers of foil to protect the wok.
  • 5 Add the tea leaves, raw rice and sugar to the wok.
  • 6 Place a grill over the wok and turn on the stove.
  • 7 Wait until the ingredients start to smoke, and then place the chicken on the grill.
  • 8 Cover the wok with aluminum foil or a lid.
  • 9 When the chicken has cooked completely, remove it from the grill and rub sesame oil over it.
  • 10 Serve immediately.
