Talk about the Spice Girls.

This Chinese Five Spice Chicken has a wonderfully warm, aromatic flavor and tastes spectacular.Well, maybe except Scary Spice.  Chinese Five Spice has a blend of cool, warm, sweet, and spicy.  Anise, Cinnamon, Star Anise, Cloves and Ginger.  You can even use Chinese Five Spice in your baked goods too.

This Chinese Five Spice Chicken has a wonderfully warm, aromatic flavor and tastes spectacular.Today the Sunday Supper Movement is joining forces to share what some people refer to as “clean” eating.  Our chef de jour, DB from Crazy Foodie Stunts is our host for today’s theme.

Since 2009, Eating Rules has been dedicating the month of October as Unprocessed month.

Unprocessed is a very ambiguous terminology, but I think for the most part we would like to believe it’s means that all ingredients haven’t been processed, packaged or hold an extremely long shelf life.

The reality is that It’s means “fresh, or unaltered.”  So I guess it’s debatable if this recipe is truly considered unprocessed or not.  Soy sauce probably is considered processed.  But I guess I won’t try to split hairs and feel that the major components of this recipe are unprocessed.

This Chinese Five Spice Chicken has a wonderfully warm, aromatic flavor and tastes spectacular.Just look at that dish.  Doesn’t it scream delicious?

Hopefully we can all become “schooled” after we view all the incredible unprocessed recipes from the Sunday Supper team.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
