serve with chinese noodles for a quick dinner

3 lbs chicken pieces

1/3 cup dark soy sauce

2 tbsp honey

1 tsp 5 spice powder

3 crushed garlic cloves

1 tbsp minced ginger

2 tbsp sesame oil

Put chicken in ziplock bag or container with a tight seal.  Combine the rest of the ingredients, mix well and pour over chicken.  Refridgerate – the longer the better.  (In a pinch I have just thrown it all together and roasted – still fabulous!)

Arrange in a single layer in a roasting dish and roast at 350 for 30 minutes – turn over and roast for a further 30 minutes, basting.

This recipe is for chicken pieces – with skin, and on the bone.  If you are using boneless/skinless chicken the cooking time will be much less.
