Five spice gives this chicken a wonderfully warm aromatic flavor that adults and children will love. Time does not include marinating.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Whisk together the marinade ingredients, put the chicken into a dish then pour over the marinade and mix to coat. Cover then chill for at least 20 minutes or up to a day if you have time.
  2. Heat the oven to 350F and lift the chicken out of the marinade into a roasting tin. Roast for 40 minutes, pour over the remaining marinade then cook for a further 30 minutes until golden and sticky.
  3. Sprinkle with the scallion and serve.

This was my 2nd or 3rd time using five spice. I marinated mine overnight. When you took it out of the oven the legs had a nice reddish brow color to them. I'll make this one again. Made for *Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup 2009* game

I used all thighs for this and let them marinate for about 5 hours. The chicken was moist and tasty. I used only 1 tbsp of peanut oil and 1 more tbsp of sesame oil. Thanx for sharing. It's a keeper!
