"This dish is great on the BBQ or cooked in the broiler at home. The secret is the fresh ginger, star anise, and a touch of sherry." — MACEO1

Chinese five-spice powder
ground anise seed
bone-in chicken parts
This was a wonderful, tasty, surprise! I did this on the grill (charcoal) with chicken legs and thighs. Considering it had only marinated roughly 2-3 hours, it was delicious! I used a bit of the marinade to baste during cooking. I'm glad it's early in the grilling season as I will surely get this in a couple more times before the cold weather returns.
Sorry but there is nothing we found fabulous about this dish. I have never had to throw out a dish before so this will be the first. I'm sorry but there is no way to salvage this chicken.
This turned out to be very good. The second time I made it I used part soy and part fish sauce. Everyone loved it.
A flavorful change of pace. Works even better when using boneless pork.
I love this recipe. It had wonderful flavours. I wasn't able to use soy sauce but used Maggi instead and it turned out great. I marinated it for a few hours making sure all the chicken was covered. tasty bbq chicken!!
Chicken was very good I made it for a family BBQ and every one loved it.
This is a great marinade, I used it on wings. BUT....you have to like Chinese 5 spice. It's a different kind of spice, with cloves, cinnamon, anise, anise & ginger.
