Chinese five spice and garlic powder jazzes up baked chicken breasts with a minimum of fuss. You can buy five spice in any supermarket.
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
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
Certainly easy to make, but this needs more! I would suggest adding some honey, soy sauce and hoisin sauce to the ingredients. If you like heat, add chilli too! That may help! - 29 Sep 2008
