    Excellent recipe. For those who are concerned about the price of five spice powder, do yourself a favor and find your nearest Asian market. I've never been in an Asian market (of any nationality) that didn't carry five spice. It will cost you less than half of what you pay at the supermarket. Most spices in an Asian market are substantially less that a supermarket. You can also make your own (recipes are all over the internet). P.S. if you use coconut milk or cream, you may pay as little as 69 or 79 cents a can at an Asian market for the same stuff you bought at Albertsons or Walmart for $2.50 or more. And, often, it's better quality, too.

    Loved this Chicken. I did it with straight OJ and I did everything as is. Great Meal.

    I used teriyaki sauce instead of soy sauce, and straight orange juice, also that spice was WAY too expensive so I used cinnamon, garlic, poppy seeds, salt, and pepper. I also cut up some onions and carrots and threw that in it. I marinated it for a night and then grilled it. It turned out wonderful.

    I swapped out gluten free soy sauce for regular soy sauce to make this marinate gluten free. The whole family liked the chicken.

    the five spice powder is expensive, but if you already have it, it gives a great flavor to the chicken. Made this on our George Foreman grill. Very good!
