Just a quick Chinese themed way of fixing chicken breasts - the prep time includes the minimum time for marinating.

Very good! I have never had chinese five spice until I bought some to use in this recipe. It was really good! I marinated my chicken for about 4 hours or so. The chicken was so juicy, but the coating on the outside was the perfect crispness. I used some sesame seeds the I toasted instead of almonds.
