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.
Looks divine! A pity the boyfriend is not a fan of the honey-soy sauce – ginger combo :p
