A Chinese classic, delicious with pancakes, spring onion, cucumber and the marinade sauce served with it in place of peking duck.

  • 1 1/2 tbs runny honey, mixed with 1 1/2 tbs hot water.
  • Marinade:
  • 3 tbs soy sauce

  • 4 tbs hoisin sauce
  • 1 tsp chinese five spice powder
  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp ginger powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
