Have my own version of Chinese Roast Duck, but no longer eat duck. When I tried the same recipe on chicken, I did not like it, so here is my new version.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Rinse and clean chicken. Leave it whole or cut into parts.
  2. If you decide to grill chicken, I suggest leaving the skin on, otherwise remove skin.
  3. Whisk arrowroot with cold water until well blended. Mix with rest of ingredients except chicken.
  4. Rub all over chicken and let stand ~ 30 minutes at room temperature (I put mine into the cold microwave to marinate.).
  5. Roast ~25 minutes in a pre-heated 350°F oven.
  6. Lower heat to 300°F and continue roasting another 20 minutes or until juices run clear when thigh is pierced.
