    SLColman's Note:

    This is best if allowed to marinate overnight. Use any pieces of chicken that you like - skinless is best as the flavor really gets into the meat more. This recipe is from another 'Zaar recipe but that one used a slow cooker and pork.

      Loved it & so did very picky friend! I ground 2 5spice stars finely in goffee/spice grinder & decreased hoisin sauce to 3T. Used the last of the ketchup - rinsed the bottle with an additional 1/4 cup of water to get it all. Marinated 14 thighs (with skin & bones) for about 2 hours & then grilled over indirect heat until done - tender meat & crispy skin, all mildly sweet & perfumed with 5 spice & ginger. Wonderful delicious recipe that I will use again. Thankyou SLColman.

      This was quite delicious, but not what I'd call "char sui." It was way too strong in the hoisin, and not enough in the five-spice powder to have a real char sui taste. My family all liked it, and we definitely voted it a "keeper" recipe. I'm sure we'll make it again.

      Great chicken! I dumped everything into a ziploc bag and left it in the fridge for a little over 24 hours. The chicken turned out nice and moist with lots of flavor. Excellent char siu recipe - thanks for posting!
