Vietnamese Roast Chicken

I bought 3 chicken thighs from the wet market. Wondering how to cook these.  Turn on the computer to search for other ways of preparing chicken rather then normal cooking like curry or so on.  Finally settled down with a recipe by Amy Beh, Vietnamese roast chicken.

the ingredients

400 g chicken
5 shallots
6 glove garlics
a small piece of ginger
1/2 tsp 5 spice powder
5 red chili
1/2 tsp fish gravy
1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt

Washed and cut the chicken into bite size, drained.  Pound all the ingredients until fine.  Marinate the chicken with the pounded ingredients for at least 3 hours.  I was just in time to prepare this dish for lunch. Roast the seasoned chicken for 10 minutes at preheated oven at 220 degrees Celsius.
