Servings: 4 to 6
Chinese cooks have used five-spice powder and hoisin to flavor barbecued meat for centuries, and they’re really onto something: it gives this chicken a sweet, spicy, haunting flavor. Unless you’re feeding all white-meat lovers or all dark-meat lovers, grill an assortment of chicken legs, thighs, breasts, and wings.
Indirect grilling is a must for chicken on the bone so the chicken can cook through before the outside burns. Don’t glaze the chicken until just before it’s done, or the glaze will burn; watch for flare-ups after the glaze goes on.

Excellent! The meat was juicy and tender and fell off the bones. The skin was well charred and a bit sticky. Came together quickly and effortlessly. I followed the recipe exactly as far as the ingredients were concerned, but did the spice rub the day before, and baked the chicken in the oven instead of grilling. It was as deeply charred as the chicken in the recipe photo. I used drumsticks only and set them on a greased rack over a foil-lined baking pan. Baked them at 400° for 20 minutes, then brushed them lightly with the glaze and baked them for an additional 25 minutes, flipping and brushing with sauce frequently until the glaze was gone. Turned the broiler on for about 2 minutes at the end. So easy and so good!
OUTSTANDING! My hubby is our charcoal grilling expert and his chicken is the BEST with a salt/pepper crispy skin, but this is a step beyond.....not only flavorful and delicious, but the rub really tenderized the thighs [our choice for grilled chicken] with a falling off the bone quality. This is worthy of a company dinner. We had with Paula Deen's Broccoli Slaw.....perfect foil for the sweet/sticky chicken.

This recipe is a keeper! Too cold and rainy to grill so prepared the chicken as directed and baked it in the oven at 350 and finished it off under the broiler. Served with Basmati rice and mixed vegetable saute. Ants would starve on what was left over!
