This went from a 4-star recipe cooked as written using a whole chicken to 5 stars when I doubled the sauce recipe and mixed it a plastic bag, then shook up a whole, cut-up chicken in it, and baked it for about an hour (I used parchment paper on the baking tray and poured the remaining sauce over the chicken). Outstanding flavor, and everyone loved it, even my picky husband. It's one of my staple recipes now.

This was a great change from the standard roast chicken. I did make a few substitutions-- I used chinese 5 spice blend in place of the spices, sesame oil in place of the veg. oil, and used Mirin in place of the sherry. I also only cooked it to 160F (it would have been toast if we'd gone to 180F). The adults and my 3 year old loved it. My five year old complained that it didn't taste like chicken, LOL!

This recipe was very dissapointing for both my husband and myself. The flavor was strange and not at all what I expected. So, I will not be making this again.
