Chicken braised wtih ginger and star aniseSubmitted by: PHRASER
1 teaspoon sichuan peppercorns
1 tablespoon canola or soy oil
2 x 3 cm piece of fresh ginger, cut into julienne strips
2 cloves garlic, chopped
4 chicken thigh fillets, approx 800g (skinless, boneless, trim visible fat)
1/3 cup Chinese rice wine
1 tablespoon honey
1/4 cup light soy sauce
1 star anise
1 head of broccoli, chopped into florets
2. Reheat the wok, add oil, swirl to coat. Add the ginger and garlic, cook over a low heat until they are lightly golden (1-2 minutes).
3. Increase the heat to medium, add the chicken, cook until brown on all sides (about 3 minutes)
4. Add all remaining ingredients except broccoli but including crushed peppercorns. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, until the chicken is tender - 15-20 minutes.
5. Add broccoli and simmer until it is tender-crisp - about another 5 minutes.
Makes 6 serves (or 4 serves if you have smaller chicken thighs) - serve with rice, noodles or whatever else seems appropriate. The sodium content is less than the nutrition calculator shows if you don't serve out all the sauce.
