Five Spice Asian Chicken
Thanksgiving… The perfect day to celebrate your God, your family and your friends. But this year I just could not bring myself to celebrate with the almighty turkey. I just did not want it. So in the weeks leading up to Thanksgiving, I contemplated what would be an acceptable substitute. I wanted something a little more low key, and a little less leftovers. So I decided to roast a chicken instead. But of course this is Thanksgiving, so not any regular chicken recipe was going to work. I needed something with a strong flavor profile so that the family did not feel like I had cheated them of tradition. So the hunt was on for different ideas on how to prepare a delicious chicken.

In my journey to find the ultimate chicken recipe I came across a recipe for this five spice chicken. The original recipe called for chicken pieces but I really wanted to present a whole chicken. So with some very simple modifications to
the original recipe, this amazing oven roasted five spice chicken recipe developed.

Although this roasted five spice Asian chicken recipe did not make it on to my table this past Thanksgiving, it is a recipe I will remain thankful for. As the protein of choice for many it is always a great thing to find new ways to prepare chicken. Instead of making this chicken I opted instead for a delicious roast leg of lamb for Thanksgiving. Maybe I will serve this chicken for Christmas instead.
