    I made the hen twice over the holiday and brought to parties. As usual, it was a hit, even though the second time I forgot to put in the 13-spice powder. Thank you, Maomaomom!

    I recommened this recipe to an American colleague who was asking me what I’d normally do, turkey or traditional Chinese dishes, for Thanksgiving. Here’s what Curtious, who’s very interested in Chinese language and culture, had to say after the holiday:

    “I cooked the ‘Chinese style smoked’ Cornish game hens from the maomaomom.com site you recommended. I didn’t have any ’13 spice’ powder, but I had ’5 spice’ powder, so maybe mine hens were only 5/13 as good as they could have been, but I think they were excellent. The best part was that I used the drippings in the pan plus some flour and milk to make gravy, which had a wonderful anise flavor.

    “I used Pu-er tea scraped off from one of the bricks of Pu-er tea I was given in China during one of the classes I taught there.”

    I think that Maomaomom just found another 老美粉丝!

    Hi Maomaomon,

    I’ve become one of your faithful followers, after trying a few of your recipes. You are the best!

    However, I had problems with this recipe. My chicken skin was not crispy like yours at all. My chicken looked a little like Chinese soy sauce chicken with soft moist skin. I followed your recipe to a T. Any idea what I did wrong? Thanks a bunch!
