Maybe this would be good with boneless, skinless thighs, but don't try it with bone-in, skin-on like I did. They're what I prefer for flavor, but I didn't make the sauce, which would have softened the crisp skin, and the flavor without was lacking. I may try them again with the proper chicken, as I love 5 spice.
Superb dish!!! Only used 1 TBSP of the Chinese five spice, other than that, followed the recipe exactly and it was GREAT!
Used chicken breasts and thighs & doubled the sauce. Delicious!
absolutely delicious, my husband is still talking about how wonderful these tasted!
I have to be honest. I didn't really like the 5 spice flavour at all. Actually, both my mother and I hated it. But my husband and father loved it. Go figure. It was pretty easy to make though, and the sauce is a keeper for sure. I grilled some baby bok choy and served it with the sauce. Delicious.
An easy and inexpensive dinner. Great for a summer dinner. In my case the thighs were not entirely done after I pulled them off the grill. I didn't want to leave them on the grill any longer for fear the skin would burn, so I put them in a 400 oven for 5 minutes-the thighs were done to perfection!
These are the best chicken thighs ever. All of my friends "asked" for the recipe as they were that good. I have cooked them 5 or 6 times now and they are always perfect. The flavours are special and the meat is so tender and juicy. I have even cooked a few dozen and frozen them for camping trips. simply re-heat on the BBQ with a little of the sauce to baste and they are as good as just cooked. One of my favourite recipes!
Fabulous flavors and could not be more simple!!! Great for easy casual entertaining!
LOVE IT!!!!!!! FAVORITE !!!!!
Outstanding! I love Chinese Five Spice and this was a great 'break in the grill it's almost spring recipe"!
I made this dish with chicken breast for a group of our friends on football Sunday and they were a total hit. They had a ton of flavor and a little kick.
great flavor, easy to make. I will make this again.
The sauce was great but I think the 5 spice was to much. 1 tsp would have been more than sufficient in my opinion. The sauce was incredible, and when I make it for myself I either omit or really cut down on the 5 spice. Without/or limited 5 spice this a really tasty easy weeknight dinner.
Really simple, really tasty, and you don't have to wait for the meat to marinate before you grill.
Quick, easy and delicious with authentic flavor. Perfect for a weeknight meal.
This recipe is quick and easy. My kids, ages 11 & 18, loved the taste.
