White Spice Chicken

READY IN: 1hr 25mins
Recipe by MrsMM

This is a gorgeous looking and tasting chicken dish. Also really simple and a great appetizer for your party. I made this for a lunch we hosted, and it was the simplest thing on the menu, and received the best reviews! Cooking time doesn't include marinating time.

The first thing the boys asked "Is this another NZ recipe?" Then they tried it and loved the flavor/texture. This is a very moist chicken. I used tenderloins and just left them long. I didn't have garlic or ginger paste so did 1/4 tsp each of powder. I also cut the white pepper in half. It was the perfect flavor for our family. Made for the September 2008 NZ/Aussie recipe swap.
