Ingredients

Prep Time

Total Time

1 hr

Yield

Makes 4 servings
  • 5 lb(s) Whole Chicken
  • .25 cup(s) Soy Sauce
  • 2 Tbsp Honey
  • 1 tsp Five Spice Powder
  • 1 clove(s) Garlic ( minced)

Directions

  • 1

    Help your chicken roast more evenly by trussing it. First, tuck the wings in to the body and then tie tight to the body of the bird. Then pull the legs together and tie them together. After trussing the bird, place the bird in a large sealable bag.

    Mix together the soy sauce, honey, five spice and garlic to make the marinade. Pour into the sealable bag with the chicken and rub all over the chicken. Remove the chicken from the marinade and discard the marinade. Place the chicken breast side up on a rack over a roasting pan. Let the chicken sit for about 30 minutes at room temperature to dry the skin. This will help the skin crisp when it cooks.

  • 3

    Roast the chicken for 45 minutes – 60 minutes at 400ºF, until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165ºF in the thighs.
