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.

A very good recipe! I only used 2 tablespoons of olive oil instead of 3 hoping to cut down on the fat. I served the dish with brown rice. My husband, baby, and I liked it, but my two boys wouldn't touch it. Surprised me considering they eat lots of different things.
