A simple Chinese dish that was taught to me when I was living in Taiwan.


  1. Cut the chicken or pork belly in to bite size pieces unless using bone in chicken.
  2. In a large pot add the water, soy sauce, chinese star anise, sugar, and chicken.
  3. Bring pot to the boil and skim off any scum.
  4. Reduce to a low heat and let simmer for about 2 hours, adding more water and soy sauce if the flavour becomes weak. At about the 1 1/2 hour mark add the boiled eggs.
  5. Serve with Hot Steamed Rice and Bok Choy.
