  1. Rinse chicken breasts and pat dry. Sprinkle with five-spice powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Wrap tightly in aluminum foil and refrigerate to 'marinate' for at least 2 hours.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. Remove wrapping from chicken breasts and place them in a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking dish. Drizzle with olive oil and bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 45 minutes, or until cooked through and juices run clear.

I'm Vietnamese and I absolutely love this dish. Instead of baking it, however, I fry it in a pan with olive oil. It doesn't turn out so dry that way. Wonderful served over rice with soy sauce.

Certainly easy to make, but this needs more! I would suggest adding some honey, soy sauce and hoisin sauce (and maybe fresh garlic instead of powder) to the ingredients. If you like heat, red pepper flakes or chili powder too! That may help!

It doesn't get much easier than this, and the results were pretty tasty too. Chinese 5 Spice can be a bit over-powering, so I followed the recipe's recommended marinading time of two hours, and I actually thought it was sufficient. I decided to cook the chicken on the Foreman grill as baked chicken can sometimes turn out a bit dry and leathery. I served it with sesame noodles, and a spring roll. Not bad at all. Thanks!

It was very easy to make this particular entree. Easiness, however, is the only good thing about this recipe. This chicken recipe turned out to be dry, bland, and just plain uninspired.

this recipe is just okay, not fond of the sweetness of five spice with the meat

Very good recipe. I breaded it and I pan seared and baked it on 350 for 45 minutes (Colorado altitude).
