    Jewelies's Note:

    This chicken comes out very tender. Not sure where the recipe came from. I think it was probably an email.

      I love my clay cooker and I am always on the lookout for ways to use it. This is one of the best I have found. Delicious, moist chicken and wonderful rich sauce. i think the marinade/sauce would be good with pork also. Thank you for a great dinner!

      I only used two whole breasts but the flavor was great. I could really taste the Chinese five spice powder. Served with spinach salad and Nona's Japanese Creamy Sesame Salad Dressing.

      This made a wonderful dinner tonight 3 gave it 5* and the 4th was going between 3 and 4 feeling that something was missing (but couldn't define it). I used a large roasting chicken (just over 2K - keeping backbone for stock) which I quartered and cooked for the full 45 minutes under cover and then 15 minutes with the lid off (could have done with an extra 5 minutes under cover). The sauce (and was surprised how much there was) was silky smooth and delicious and was not salty from the soy, as a matter of fact all the flavours melded well and none were predominant. Thank you Jewelies for a definate keeper, made for Edition 5 - Make My Recipe - a game of tag.
