5 Spice Chicken with Jade Rice

Fairly recently two of my favorite bloggers each posted one of these recipes, Birin from Roti and Rice made a wonderful 5 spice whole roasted chicken and Ann from Anncoo Hobby made a Jade fried rice.  This inspired me to combine the two and what a great pairing it was.

marinade for chicken 
  • 1/2 teaspoon 5 spice powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger/garlic paste
  • one tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoon soy sauce 
  • dash of sesame oil 

for the rice:

  • one cup of cooked rice
  • one cup of spinach 
  • 2 cloves of chopped garlic 
  • 2 eggs whisked a little with a pinch of salt and pepper 
  • dash of soy sauce 
  • 1/4 an onion chopped 

  1. combine the ingredients for the chicken marinade and marinate the chicken in it for a couple of hours, I cooked a couple of chicken quarters
  2. roast in oven with a lid at 350 for 20 minutes and then another 15- 20 minutes with the lid of
  3. for the Jade fried rice, I sauteed the garlic with the spinach until it cooked down then blended it 
  4. I then stir fried the onion in a wok on high added the rice, spinach and egg and stirred like crazy to cook the egg :-) 
What recipe have you cooked recently inspired by a food blog?

  2. So glad you liked the 5-spice roast chicken. I like how you have added a little sauce to it. I need to try Ann's jade rice soon. Looks very healthy and delicious :)

  3. This is a great dinner I wouldn't mind having every week. :)

  4. Oh no! I left my 5-spice at home in DC. I'll have to pick it up when I visit home this March. This dish looks soooo good, Rebecca! And I love Biren and Anncoo too. :-)

  5. Yummy it looks so good Rebecca! Two of my favorite bloggers too. i love Jade rice, have it many times in my bentos. Love the idea of five spice chicken. very nice!

  6. I've never used 5 spice powder, but this dish sounds delicious with it!

  7. What a great dinner! We constantly learn new dishes from food blogger friends and it's such an awesome experience!

  8. I hope my 5 spice powder is still good. We use it only sporadically and still have half a jar after several years. Maybe I should just use more to compensate for staleness. Ah me, so much food, so much time.
