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.

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.
