Cooking time: 60 mins
1 whole chicken about 1.2kg to 1.5kg
2 tablespoon honey
3 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon sugar
2 teaspoon light soy sauce
1 teaspoon dark soy sauce
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 tsp five spice powder
1 tsp minced garlic
Rinse the chicken and drain well
Combine all the marinade in a bowl and mix well and rub on the whole chicken, both inside and outside well
Cover the chicken with glad wrap and leave it the fridge to marinate overnight.
Remove the glad wrap the next day and leave it in the fridge for 2 hours to dry out the skin (turn the chicken upside down after an hour to dry out the other side)
Preheat oven at 180°C and bake for 40mins or until golden brown
Use a brush and brush the chicken with honey and bake for another 5 mins. Remove and leave to slightly cool before cut into bite size and serve.
Buffalo Air Fryer Method:
Insert the fork into the middle of the chicken and secure both sides to the chicken fork.
Place the secured chicken fork into the air fryer and close the lid
Set the timer and select roast mode/ roll mode / 170°C / 1 hour
Brush the honey on the chicken 5 mins before it is ready then continue roasting until time is up. (Note: set your own timer to 55 min and when time up brush with honey, the fork will turn by itself for you to brush the honey)
Remove and leave to slightly cool before cut into bite size and serve
