Five-Spice Grilled Chicken Thighs with Blackberry Glaze

Photo: Oxmoor House

Rev up simple grilled chicken thighs with aromatic Chinese five-spice powder—a blend of cinnamon, cloves, fennel seed, star anise, and Szechuan peppercorns. The glaze thickens as it cools; simply reheat it in the microwave for 10 seconds for the right consistency.

Prep: 7 minutes; Cook: 12 minutes
