Zero-Carb Chinese Five Spice Chicken Recipe
This Zero-Carb Chinese Five Spice Chicken recipe is one of our favorites to grill, but it can also be baked. And, yes, it’s true: this recipe has zero carbohydrates.
The five spices are a blend you can get in the supermarket.
3 pounds chicken (any combination — ideal if they are similar sizes — works great for thighs, but I’ve done a variety)
1/3 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup oil, such as light olive oil or peanut oil
1 teaspoon garlic powder (or 2 fresh garlic cloves, pressed)
2 teaspoons five spice powder
1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
1 tablespoon dry sherry
Make the Marinade
In a small bowl, combine 1/3 cup soy sauce, 1/4 cup oil, such as light olive oil or peanut oil, 1 teaspoon garlic powder or 2 fresh pressed garlic cloves, 2 teaspoons five-spice powder, 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger and 1 tablespoon dry sherry, and use as a marinade.
In a large plastic or ceramic container with a lid, place the 3 pounds chicken. Pour the marinade over all the pieces, turning until all the pieces are coated evenly. Cover and marinate at least 1 hour, and up to overnight.
Bake in a 375-degree F. oven (basting once or twice), or grill, for about 45 minutes or until done.
