For the glaze

  • 8-10 Clementines
  • 1 teaspoon Chinese Five Spice
  • 1 tablespoon orange blossom honey
  • zest of 3 Clementines
  • ½ teaspoon ground white pepper
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt

For the chicken!


To make the glaze

  • Start by peeling 8-10 Clementines and place them into a blender or a container and use a stick blender.
  • Place a sieve over a sauce pan and pour the mixture through it.
  • Add remaining glaze ingredients
  • Bring to a boil. Lower the heat to medium, so you don't boil over.
  • Stir frequently.
  • Cook until the juice it has begun to thicken and is almost a syrup like consistency, but not quite.
  • Taste the glaze. Add more seasonings if necessary.

To prepare the chicken

  • Season with kosher salt. Then grab a large skillet or electric skillet, and place enough oil just to cover the bottom.
  • Heat the skillet over medium high heat.
  • When skillet is ready, place the chicken inside.
  • Cook until the chicken pieces have browned all over and there is no pink in the middle.


If you are going to use white meat instead, make sure you cut the chicken up small so the pieces will cook faster. They are less likely to dry out then.
