Chinese five spice seasoning is made up of cloves, anise seed, star anise, cinnamon and ginger. You can find it premixed in any supermarket. The chicken breasts are sprinkled with this spice, marinated and baked.
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. - 15 Sep 2008
Something else. when i made this i added honey and ginger to it, this added to the chinese flavour. Even when i didnt change anything though it was still very nice. i sliced it into cubes and stir fried it, serving it with rice and a splash of soy-sauce - 17 Sep 2009
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! - 15 Sep 2008
