 Roast Chicken is an traditional meal during Chinese New Year!


Amount Ingredient
  1 pkg. Sun-Bird Hot & Spicy Szechwan Seasoning Mix (3/4 ounce)
  3 tbsp. soy sauce
  3 tbsp. water
  3 tbsp. honey
  1 tsp. sesame oil or canola oil
  1 whole chicken, about 3 to 3 1/2 lbs

Preparation Instructions:

Combine all ingredients, except chicken, in a small bowl; blend well. Place chicken in a re-sealable plastic bag. Pour marinade over chicken and seal bag. Refrigerate up to 2 hrs, turning bag occasionally.

Preheat oven to 350°. Remove chicken from bag, reserving marinade. Place chicken on a rack in a roasting pan, breast-side up. Place reserved marinade in a small, heavy saucepan. Heat until boiling, reduce heat and simmer 3 min., stirring constantly.

Roast chicken 35 min., basting occasionally with hot Szechwan mixture. Cover loosely with aluminum foil. Continue roasting an additional 45 min., basting occasionally, until chicken is fully-cooked and internal temperature reaches 180°. Let chicken stand 10 min. before serving.

Makes 4 to 6 servings.
