Five-Spice Roast Chicken Thighs 五香烤鸡

A simple and easy to prepare roast chicken thighs that tasted like braised duck because of the 5-spice powder.

Yield: 4 chicken thighs


4 chicken thigh with skin

1 tbsp rice wine
1 tsp light soya sauce
1/4 tsp dark soya sauce
2 tsp raw sugar
1 tsp golden syrup/honey
3~4g fine salt, close to 1/2 tsp
1/4 tsp five-spice powder
1/2 tsp ground rainbow/black pepper

1 tbsp rice bran oil
remaining marinade


1.Rinse chicken thighs and trim away excess fat.

2. Marinate the chicken thighs for 30 minutes to 2 hours, or overnight.

Seal the marinated thighs with cling wrap. For a longer marinating period, keep them in the fridge. Thaw the meat close to room temperature before roasting.

3. Arrange the meat, in a single layer, over a grilling plate or over a baking tray lined with parchment paper.

Collect the remaining marinade and mix with 1 tbsp of rice bran oil for glazing the meat later.

4. Roast the meat in a preheated oven toaster at 180°C for 20 minutes.

Remove from the oven toaster, and brush a coat of glaze over the skin. Return the meat to the oven toaster and continue to roast at 180°C for 10 minutes.

Reduce the temperature to 170°C and continue to glaze and roast at an interval of 10 minutes till you use up the glazing sauce. About 2 to 3 rounds of glazings.

At the final round, reduce the temperature to 150°C and roast for 10 minutes. Keep the meat in the oven toaster for another 20 to 30 minutes to melt the fat under the skin.

5. Enjoy :)
