Tips and tricks to make perfect baked five-spice chicken thighs 

  1. Use a wire rack: Placing the chicken on a wire rack over a baking sheet will allow air to circulate around the chicken, which will help it cook more evenly and prevent the skin from getting soggy.
  2. Baste the chicken: You can also add butter to the basting sauce for a better flavor.
  3. Let the chicken rest: Once the chicken is fully cooked, let it rest for 5-10 minutes before serving. This will allow the juices to redistribute and help keep the meat moist.
