Asian Baked and Stir-fried Barbecue

I know. This is slightly schizophrenic. Am I baking or stir-frying?


You see I had the idea (after looking at tons of recipes about chicken and barbecue and Asian) of baking some chicken out of a marinade.

And then it seemed it would be good dressing up a stir fry. Then I figured the marinade could double as the stir-fry sauce.

And voilà, a genius recipe is born.

Well, okay. It is a good one. See what you think.


  • 1/3 c soy sauce
  • 1 tsp hot sesame seed oil
  • 1 tsp fish sauce
  • 1 tsp mirin
  • 1 TBSP hot chili sauce
  • 1 TBSP rice wine vinegar
  • 1/4 c coca cola
  • 3 TBSP brown sugar
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp fresh ginger, minced
  • 1/2 tsp granulated onion
  • 1 Serrano chili, minced

4 chicken thighs, bone-in


  • 2 carrots, cut on the diagonal into bite-sized pieces
  • 1/2 medium onion, cut into wedges
  • 1/3 package frozen french petite green beans
  • 4 scallions cut on the diagonal
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • sesame seeds for garnish


  1. Mix all the marinade together, add the chicken and marinade in the fridge for at least 4 hours, turning occasionally.
  2. An hour before eating, place chicken in a foil-lined baking dish and bake at 425° for 50 minutes and then 10 minutes under the broiler.
  3. Place the marinade from the bag into a saucepan and heat until boiling and then set aside.
  4. About 30 minutes before eating, make the rice (1 2/3 c water to 1 c rice and pinch of salt)
  5. About 20 minutes before eating, heat oil in the wok and add  carrots and onions, cooking until about half done. Add the green beans and continue until crisp tender.
  6. Add some of the marinade to the wok and the scallions and toss to coat, letting it get a bit syrupy. (be careful not to have over cooked the veggies.)
  7. Serve over rice with a piece of the chicken, sprinkle with sesame seeds, and the remaining marinade on the side for more sauce.

Serves: 4 or less depending on how big a pig your eaters are!

  2. Looks yummy!!!!…I really love asian barbeque? any meats will do….I will try your marinade mix next time..using coca cola,,,usually I used sprite or soda…thanks!!!

    • It turned out quite well and we enjoyed it. I think the coke adds the “caramel” thingie, lol but certainly sprite would add some sugar and citrus notes!
