Instructions

  1. Preheat oven and make marinade

    • Preheat the oven to 200°C.
    • In a bowl, mix garlic, crushed ginger, ½ cup soy sauce, ¼ cup mandarin orange juice, ¼ cup oyster sauce, ½ tbsp kecap manis, 1 tbsp sugar, ½ tsp salt, ¼ tsp white pepper until well combined.


  2. Marinate Chicken

    • Massage the marinade evenly over the chicken and leave to marinade in the fridge for 24 hours (a minimum of 6 hours).

    | You may dry the chicken in the fridge instead of in front of the fan

  3. Dry and roast chicken

    • Place the chicken skin side down on an aluminum lined rack and leave to dry under a fan for up to 4 hours.
    • Using pieces of aluminum foil, wrap the drumstick ends and wings tips.
    • Place the chicken in the oven’s centre rack, roasting for 35 minutes. (If it gets too brown, cover the tray with foil.)

    | Wrapping the drumstick and wings in aluminum foil prevents it from burning



  4. Make glaze

    • In a bowl, mix together 2 tbsp mandarin juice, ¼ tbsp black pepper, 1 tbsp honey, white sesame seeds and ½ tsp five spice powder.


  5. Glaze the chicken

    • After 35 minutes, brush glaze evenly over the chicken, remove the foil at the wing tips and drumsticks. Let it roast for a further 8 to 10 minutes.
