    Spoonfed's Note:

    I found an interesting recipe on Epicurious and adapted it over time. You can check out the original here (http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/Grilled-Five-Spice-Chicken-105523). I made it a bit healthier by using boneless, skinless chicken, added some spices I like to the marinade, and boosted the flavor in the dipping sauce too. I’ll admit that I really don’t measure anything when I cook so all of the amounts are approximate. Don’t sweat it – use more or less of things as you prefer. This comes together in a snap – I make the marinade in the morning before work and let it sit in the fridge all day. Then, when I get home, I pull it out to the counter and toast the star anise immediately. The dish comes together in 15 minutes from that point.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 4

    Yield:

    3 strip ...

    Units: US | Metric

    Sauce

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients except the star anise and chicken. Stir well to blend. Add the chicken pieces and toss. Cover with plastic wrap or transfer to a zip log bag and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours (and ideally overnight).
    2. 2
      Thirty minutes before cooking, remove the chicken and the marinade from the refrigerator, and allow to sit out at room temperature. Place the star anise pods in a dry, hot pan over medium high heat and toast for about 3 minutes. Remove from the pan and pound or grind in a spice grinder into a powder. Add the star anise powder to the chicken and marinade and stir well. Meanwhile, make the sauce by mixing all ingredients together in a small bowl.
    3. 3
      Cook the chicken on a traditional grill for about ten minutes, or use a stovetop grill pan, sprayed with a little non-stick cooking spray. Alternatively, you could even broil the chicken on high, turning a couple of times for even browning.
    4. 4
      Transfer to a serving platter and serve with the dipping sauce. This chicken is great with some rice to soak up the extra sauce and an Asian-style slaw, steamed sugar snap peas, or broccoli sautéed with some sesame seeds and red pepper strips. My husband loves this simple dish and it’s a big hit with my kids too! It’s also a great crowd pleaser at an outdoor BBQ. It’s like comfort food, made just a little more exotic than usual!
