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.

 

Ingredients

Chicken:

3 pounds chicken (any combination — ideal if they are similar sizes — works great for thighs, but I’ve done a variety)

Marinade:

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

Preparation

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.

Marinate Chicken

 

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.

 

Cook Chicken

 

Bake in a 375-degree F. oven (basting once or twice), or grill, for about 45 minutes or until done.
