Chinese Five Spice Roast Chicken in Can

I decided to make Chinese 5 spice ( 5 Heung Fan) roast chicken after I saw few blogger have roast chicken in their blog..One of my Christmas Dinner dish is roast chicken in can.Most of the time ,I use BBO sauce or western spices but for a change,I want to use Chinese 5 spice to roast chicken for Christmas Dinner.Five-spice powder is a convenient seasoning in Chinese cuisine. It incorporates the five basic flavors of Chinese cooking — sweet, sour, bitter, savory, and salty. It consists of Chinese Tung Hing cinnamon (actually a type of cassia), powdered cassia buds, powdered star anise and anise seed, ginger root, and ground cloves.It is used in most recipes for Cantonese roasted duck, as well as beef stew. The five-spice powder mixture has followed the Chinese diaspora and has been incorporated into national cuisines throughout Asia.
Ready to serve roasted whole chicken stuffed with fresh basil and rub with 5 spice powder.

I forget to flip the breast side on top instead the back bone of the chicken for Browning..Well,too busy cooking and table setting....Removed the whole chicken from roasting can and let it roast for 15 minutes at 425 F or until the skin is brown.
I like all my roasting meat wrapped over foil for's same apply to my 5 spice whole chicken..My opinion toward the wrapping foil is that the meat are more moist and soft tender..Ready to go to preheat oven at 375 F for 2 1/2 to 3 hours ..
Ready hook up on can ..need to cut some orange and big onion to stuff at the bottom for the chicken to get more flavor..
I never use this can roaster rack.....still trying to figure out how to hook up this 6 pound chicken with toppling both side upside down..
I rubbed some Chinese 5 spice ,salt and sugar over this 6 pound of chicken..I stuffed 10 stalks of fresh basil in cavity..I let it seasoning overnight..
Prepared my new can roaster rack...I cover the bottom over foil for easy scrapping...Well,the rack stand supposed to face up not wonder I can't hook up my 6 pound whole chicken without falling all over..!!
Note:I found that can roasting rack is not bad..actually the roasting process of the whole chicken is more even in roasting can compare with the regular roasting,just lay flat each side..of course I can't compare with Rotisserie roasting machine..Anyway,if you don't have roasting can rack but would like to roast your chicken this style,my suggestion,you can use empty soda can and regular roasting tray..Trust me ,soda can do the same job as roasting can..

I totally loved this stand roaster rack! The skin on the chicken will be crispy on all sides and also even browning. I always roast my chicken with this.

Yes,my hubby eat 5 spice roast chicken but not 5 spice stewed chicken.I remember when I stewed chic one time,I'm the only one eat the whole chic, I think the spices flavour too powerful when stew..but roasting is different and I just use 2 tsp.

You like this rack?? you clean up the dripping sauce after roasting??.Mine is soaking in water,I even lay a foil..but can't scrap the sauce for days..

you talking about the chicken or ME!!lol!!

Gert,I bought it in Biglots for $6.99 or $7.99 but I saw TV commercial do have this too..I have this set for more than a year,you know ,buy and store,sudah lupa..

any can will do but not with beer or soda inside,surely will pop out..talking about beer chicken,maybe I should cook''beerchicken"!!hehehe!!

U cook in open fire or oven??'s suggested that we can cook over BBQ pit but now here so cool ,how to cook over BBQ pit?..
