Mealthy Tip

Adding water to the baking dish allows the chicken to steam while roasting at the same time. It also provides jus for basting, resulting in moist, tender meat. Letting the chicken come to room temperature before roasting means that it will cook more evenly.

A chef once told me his secret ingredient for almost every dish, including desserts, was a pinch of Chinese 5-spice. I really took that to heart and love when dishes feature it. The chilies, soy sauce, scallion, garlic, and sesame oil really create a nice marinade.

Chinese 5-spice is one of my favorite secret seasonings to use! This chicken was really good because of the spices, but also because of the incredible marinade! That was definitely my favorite part. So delicious!

This 5 spice Chinese chicken was fantastic. The chicken was very moist and tender, and the flavor was out of this world. Roasting whole chickens is the way to go, and this recipe is so easy everyone should want to try it.
