5 Spice Honey Roast Chicken


1 roasting chicken


Clean the chicken and pat dry with paper towels. Chop the scallions into thirds, lightly smashing the white sections. For the marinade, combine the dark soy sauce, granulated sugar, five-spice powder, ginger and the chopped scallions. Place the chicken in a large bag and add half the marinade. Reserve the remaining half of the marinade to baste the chicken during cooking. Marinate the chicken in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours (preferably all night) turning the bag occasionally so that all the chicken is coated in the marinade.

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. Place the chicken on a rack in a roasting pan breast side down. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Roast for 15 minutes. Reduce the heat to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Roast the chicken, basting frequently with the reserved marinade, for another hour or until it is cooked. (To check for doneness, pierce the chicken in the thickest part of the thigh. The juices should run clear. If using a meat thermometer, the temperature should read 170 degrees Fahrenheit in the thickest part of the thigh. Let the roasted chicken sit for 15 – 25 minutes before serving!

Chinese 5 Spice – Did You Know?

Chinese 5 Spice powder is a mixture of, you guessed it, five spices and is used primarily in Chinese cuisine. The Splendor Garden Chinese 5 Spice Blend consists of Organic Anise Seed, Organic Cinnamon, Organic Cloves, Organic Fennel & Organic Black Pepper.

It’s thought that ancient Chinese were attempting to produce a “wonder powder” that encompasses all five tastes: sweet, sour, bitter, salty and a fifth taste that is alternately known as hot, pungent or spicy.

Chinese 5 spice pairs well with chicken, pork, and veal or sprinkle 1 tsp on a medley of sweet potatoes, white potatoes, carrots and onion for a delicious twist on a roast potato dish.
