ONE TRAY HOISIN PEANUT CHICKEN + RICE

One Tray Hoisin Peanut Chicken and Rice, all done in one dish and ready in less than an hour!
Another recipe for those of us who love dinner done in one dish.  Out of site in the oven and ready in less than an hour.  The oven is definitely my tool of choice, seems much less labour intensive when a meal is cooked in the oven, like you can walk away and go on with your life while dinner magically prepares itself.  Even if that life is excitingly washing the dishes standing a metre from said oven.
