This gluten free roasted chicken recipe is made with five spice powder, a combination of five spices used predominantly in Chinese cuisine as well as other Asian cooking. Although there are many variations, a typical blend is star anise, cloves, cinnamons, fennel seeds and Sichuan peppercorns. Developed in prehistoric China, five spice powder incorporates five tastes including sweet, bitter, spicy, sour, and salty. Five spice powder can be used as a marinade or spice rub for roasted meats or poultry, in stir-fries and in meat stews.

In this recipe, I have used Chinese five spice powder as a spice rub plus crushed dried chilli flakes for my chicken quarters, giving the chicken a delicious blend of flavours and a hint of heat.
