Full Answer

After marinating in the five-spice mixture, Cantonese-style chicken is air-dried for several hours until the skin is completely dry. Next, the chicken is usually dressed in a vinegar barbecue syrup and then either deep-fried or roasted until the skin is crispy and sweet. This Cantonese dish is famous for the juxtaposition between tender, soft, white meat and crunchy, well-done skin, and it is often saved for special occasions with family.
