Clementine & Five-Spice Chicken

January/February 2012

Your rating: None Average: 4.4 (51 votes)

This chicken recipe gets intense, complex flavor from tangy clementines, five-spice powder and pungent Sichuan peppercorns. This dish is a marvel for entertaining: it takes just 35 minutes of prep and a handful of ingredients, but it looks and tastes super-special. Feel free to use mandarins, honey tangerines or oranges here instead of the clementines.

Really Good

This is a yummy and easy recipe I would highly recommend. Delicious and beautiful to look at!

Easy to make
Amazing and Easy!

This dish was super yummy and easy not to mention healthy! I used boneless breasts and pounded into cutlets. After they rested I cut them into pieces, so we could use chopsticks. I served the chicken over brown rice and then topped with the sauce. I can't wait to make it again!

Flexible ingredients - use any kind of orange, any kind of chicken...
Very Delicious and Family Friendly

The three empty plates at the end of dinner said it all. From adult to child, this was enjoyed. Easy to put together, yet looks very elegant.

tasty, healthy, family-friendly
Clementine & Five-Spice Chicken

I am a vegetarian, so I made this with quorn chicken and had to adjust the cooking time accordingly. Other than that I followed the recipe exactly and it was delicious! My only complaint is that I would have loved more sauce because it was so good. I served it with rice and some brussels sprouts sauteed with scallions, 5 spice powder, and soy sauce. The slight bitter of the sprouts with the sweet of the orange was perfect.
