      Finally, a real Chinese tasting lemon chicken with just an amazing flavor! I so loved this and so did the kids despite it being too spicy for them. Next time I'll decrease the amount of hot pepper and I did not use the star anise which I don't like but I'll definitely be making this again! 10/16/08 edit: I just wanted to add that I have made this several times now and I find that it tastes best when the ginger is not crushed, just briefly cooked in the sauce and then removed otherwise it does get a bit overpowering unless you are completely enthralled with ginger than it probably wouldn't matter.
