Roasted Sesame Chicken

I had one chicken left in the freezer and decided to roast it. I used Gina's (KitchenCapers) recipe but modified it slightly. I drizzled the sesame oil just before putting the chicken into the oven.

1 chicken cut into 4
100 ml water
150 ml oyster sauce
50g brown sugar
2 tbsp 5-spiced powder
1 large garlic, smashed
1 inch ginger, smashed
some sesame seed for sprinkling
some sesame oil for drizzling


1. Preheat oven to 200 C
2. Clean, pat dry chicken and rub some salt over chicken
3. Combine water, oyster sauce, brown sugar, 5-spiced powder, garlic and ginger into a pot and boil the mixture
4. Pour boiled mixture over chicken and leave it to marinate for about 10 minutes, turn chicken over and let it marinate for another 10 minutes
5. Arrange chicken on the roasting rack, sprinkle sesame seed on the chicken
6. Drizzle sesame oil on the chicken pieces and bake for about 30 - 40 minutes or till cooked
7. For dipping sauce, pour excess marinating sauce back to the pot and reheat, add a bit of water to dilute it a little
8. Serve chicken hot with dipping sauce
