Step 1

Preheat the oven to 190C/375F. In a medium bowl combine the soy sauce, grated ginger, sesame oil, honey, Chinese 5 spice powder and the juice of 1 orange. Divide the sauce. Slice the other orange. Line a shallow roasting pan with parchment paper and arrange chicken pieces interspersed with orange slices on it, tucking orange slices under the chicken.

Step 2

Brush the chicken thighs and drumsticks with half of the prepared honey soy sauce on both sides. Reserve the other half of the sauce for a later use. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes. Take out of the oven and baste the chicken pieces with the juices that collected at the bottom of the pan. Cook for additional 20 minutes until the chicken juices run clear if pierced and the skin is golden brown or the internal temperature registers at 73C/160F if tested with a meat thermometer.

Step 3

Remove the chicken and orange slices to a platter and pour in the juices from the bottom of the pan into a saucepan together with the reserved honey soy sauce. Reduce on high heat until thick and syrupy for approximately 5-7 minutes. Watch carefully for the glaze not to burn. Brush the chicken thighs and legs with the honey soy glaze, then sprinkle with sliced green onions and sesame seeds.
