Chinese five-spice is made up of cloves, anise, star anise, cinnamon and ginger and can be bought in the supermarket in the spice aisle. These chicken breasts are sprinkled with spice, marinated and baked.
INGREDIENTS (for 2 servings):
- 2 whole bone-in chicken breasts, with skin
- 2 teaspoons Chinese five-spice powder
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
Rinse chicken breasts and pat dry. Sprinkle with five-spice powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Wrap tightly in aluminum foil and refrigerate to 'marinate' for at least 2 hours.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Remove wrapping from chicken breasts and place them in a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking dish. Drizzle with olive oil and bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 45 minutes, or until cooked through and juices run clear.
