Great oriental roast chicken

Measure Ingredient

1 tablespoon Oil (I used olive oil that night.)
1½ teaspoon 5-spice powder
½ cup Soy sauce

Date: Wed, 7 Aug 1996 14:44:18 +0300 (IDT) Clean and soak chicken in salt water for one hour...If you don't want to soak it in salt water, you can use white vinegar in place of the salt...(Soaking fowl pulls out the blood and reduces the chance of poisoning.) Rinse chicken well and coat with oil. Place chicken on a roasting stand. (You can get cheap stands from Lechter's or Walter Drake.) In a separate bowl, mix 5-spice powder with soy sauce. Brush half of the soy sauce mixture all over the chicken. Bake in a preheated oven at 400 degrees for one hour. Brush remaining soy sauce mixture all over chicken.

Continue baking chicken til done...about another 40 minutes to 1 hour.

Chicken should be crispy and brown. Serve immediately or wait til chicken is completely cool and cut up for lunches.
