    Something else. 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 marinating time of two hours, and I actually thought it was sufficient. I decided to cook the chicken on the barbecue 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!  -  29 Sep 2008


    Something else. 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.  -  29 Sep 2008


    It was very easy to make this particular dish. Easiness, however, is the only good thing about this recipe. This chicken recipe turned out to be dry, bland and just plain uninspired.  -  29 Sep 2008
