Smoked Chicken



I was so happy when I saw Elin of  Elinluv's Tidbits Corner posted the recipe for Smoked Chicken.  I quickly bookmarked it as  sometimes I'm at a loss at what to prepare for dinner and this recipe comes in handy as it's simple to prepare.  This is a tasty  dish and it's finger licking good, trust me!

    • 1/2 Tbsp five spice powder

    Method
    1. Marinate the chicken with the five spice powder, black pepper and seasalt for a few hours.  (I did it overnight and kept in the fridge).
