Chinese 5-spice Slow Cooked Chicken

I made this for guests a few weeks ago and it went down really well, although I totally forgot to take a photo to make your mouths really water!!


1 whole chicken
400ml hot chicken stock
75ml soy sauce
6 spring onions, sliced diagonally in 2cm lengths
150ml orange juice
thumb-sized piece of ginger, chopped
2 garlic cloves, chopped
2 tbsp 5-spice powder
1 tbsp brown sugar
3 cinnamon sticks
2-3 star anise
3 cloves
10 peppercorns
1 tbsp cornflour, mixed with 2 tbsp of cold water


  1. Rub the chicken skin with oil and 5-spice powder.
  2. Place chicken in the slow cooker pot and add all the other ingredients in around it.
  3. Cook on LOW for ~7 hours or for 1 hour on HIGH and 3-4 hours on LOW.

Enjoy with egg fried rice and stir fried vegetables.
