Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information.

Instructions

  1. Well, it had to come to this. Taking recipes from paper towel ads.
  2. Sigh... See what new toys will do to you? And frankly, if you overlook the fact that this "Peking" chicken recipe completely ignores the spirit of Peking Duck which is cooked primarily for the SKIN, it doesn't sound half bad.
  3. For speed as well as convenience, there's nothing like a microwave oven.
  4. And, remember that any paper product can burn if used improperly in a microwave or conventional oven. In case of fire, turn microwave off and leave door closed.
  5. 1. In 12-inch round or oval microwave-safe baking dish combine honey, soy sauce, lemon juice, ginger, garlic, paprika and sesame seeds. Stir well.
  6. 2. Coat chicken breasts with marinade, reserving extra sauce; arrange chicken in ring fashion, with ends touching. Cover and refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours.
  7. 3. Cover with 4 sections of paper towel, tucking ends underneath dish.
  8. 4. Cook on HIGH for 6 to 7 minutes, just until chicken loses its pinkness in the thickest part.
  9. 5. To heat tortillas, use 3 sections of paper towels. Place tortillas in center and fold over sides. Heat one stack on HIGH for 1 to 2 minutes, just until warm to the touch. Heat remaining stack as needed.
  10. 6. To serve, slice chicken and arrange on a platter. Pass small dishes of sliced scallions, hoisin sauce, cilantro and warm tortillas.
  11. 7. To eat, spread sauce on tortilla; place chicken, scallions and cilantro inside. Roll up and eat with your fingers.
  12. Makes 4 servings.

Tips

Health Tips

  • Before you pass up garlic because you don't want the bad breath that comes with it, keep in mind that the compounds that cause garlic breath also offer a lot of health benefits. Garlic has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antibacterial, and antiviral properties. If you really want to get the most health benefits out of your garlic, choose Spanish garlic, which contains the most allicin (one of garlic's most beneficial compounds).

  • You can reduce your sodium intake by choosing lower-sodium soy sauce.

  • If you're following a gluten-free diet, be sure to find a gluten-free soy sauce!

  • Many people proclaim the health benefits of honey, saying it possesses antibacterial, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties. Although the extent of its health benefits in humans remains unclear, studies have indeed confirmed that honey can help with cold symptoms and even heal wounds and prevent infections. If you're looking to reap the potential health benefits, dark raw honey is likely the best option.

Price Tips

  • If you find meat (especially grassfed and/or organic meat!) on sale, stock up and freeze it. Ground meat will stay good 3-4 months, while steaks, chops, etc., will be fine for at least 4 months.

Cooking Tips

  • If you normally rinse your chicken?stop! You could be spreading bacteria around your kitchen and it isn't really necessary.

  • Keeping ginger on hand all the time doesn't mean you have to buy bottled ginger. Instead, freeze fresh ginger whole and grate what you need while its still frozen.

  • The average fresh lemon contains between 2 to 3 tablespoons of lemon juice (just in case you are substituting bottled lemon juice).

  • Here's a trick for peeling garlic quickly. Put the garlic clove on your cutting board. Take a knife with a thick blade and place the blade flat across the garlic clove (the clove should be closer to the handle than the middle of the blade). Whack down on the flat side of the blade with your free hand to smoosh the garlic a bit. Done correctly, the skin will peel right off.

Green Tips

  • Choose pasture-raised chicken if it is available. If it is not at your supermarket, visit a farmers' market and ask around.

  • Buying local honey from beekeepers in your area not only supports your community but helps those beekeepers protect bees! LocalHarvest can help you locate some tasty honey produced near you.
