    Cookin-jo's Note:

    This chicken in a sticky glaze is a new family favourite but I'd serve it to guests as well. Boneless skinless chicken thighs stay tender and moist and chopped peanuts make an attractive garnish.

    1. 1
      Heat butter and oil in a large frying pan over medium heat.
    2. 2
      Open chicken thighs to lie flat in the pan and brown on both sides, in batches if necessary. Set chicken aside.
    3. 3
      Remove all but 1 Tbsp of fat from the pan, then add remaining ingredients except peanuts and cilantro.
    4. 4
      Stir and simmer until the sauce becomes thickened and syrupy, about 15 minutes. Taste carefully (it's very hot!) and add more garlic and vinegar if necessary to your taste.
    5. 5
      Return the chicken to the pan, coat with syrup and cook until chicken is cooked through. If the glaze becomes too thick add a small amount of water and stir. Remove star anise if using.
    6. 6
      Garnish with chopped peanuts and cilantro if you like and serve.

      I left out the anise and the peanuts and this was delicious to say the least! We will be having this many more times down the road!

      THIS IS FABULOUS! Like another reviewer...I left the browned chicken in the pan and just poured the sauce ingredients in the pan to thicken for 15 minutes....soooo easy! Served with rice....we loved it! Served with green onions on top instead of the peanuts due to personal preference. Certainly company worthy, QUICK and adictive.
