  1. In a mixing bowl, combine hoisin, soy, honey, rice wine vinegar, sesame oil, garlic, ginger, Chinese five spice powder, salt, and black pepper. Stir well to create the marinade.
  2. Place chicken thighs in a resealable plastic bag or a shallow dish. Pour the marinade over the chicken, ensuring it is evenly coated. Seal the bag or cover the dish and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight for best flavor.
  3. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat.
  4. Remove the chicken thighs from the marinade, allowing any excess marinade to drip off – Reserve the remaining marinade for basting.
  5. Place the chicken thighs on the preheated grill. Cook for about 6-8 minutes per side, or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F and the chicken is nicely charred and caramelized.
  6. While grilling, baste the chicken thighs with the reserved marinade, brushing it on every few minutes for additional flavor and moisture.
  7. Once cooked through, remove the chicken thighs from the grill and allow to rest for a few minutes before serving.
  8. Serve with steamed white rice and grilled broccolini or your favorite vegetable.
