I found this recipe on the Food Network website. It looks way too delicious! It's from the show Weighing In. I would definitely half this recipe, but thought I'd post it as is.
- 4 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts, diced
- 1⁄2 cup low sodium soy sauce
- 1⁄3 cup honey
- 1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
- 2 star anise
- 2 tablespoons peeled and grated fresh ginger
- 10 green onions, sliced 1/4-inch thick
- 1 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
- In a large baking dish, mix the diced chicken, soy sauce, honey, hoisin sauce, star anise, and ginger. Bake for 35 minutes.
- Sprinkle green onion and cilantro over top and serve.
I made this for a group of 15 and everyone loved it. The star anise was the mystery ingredient that everyone loved but could not identify. I did overcook a little - no one complained, but I knew it was a bit dry. As for the recipe quantities, I tweaked it a little by doubling the amount of hoisin. I put the onions and cilantro on the table and left it up to each person to garnish according to their preference and that worked out well.
This seemed a bit dry. But I didn't do the green onions since my husband hates onions. I didn't have fresh ginger, so I subbed ground. Also used pineapple in place of star anise, so maybe without those revisions it would have been better.
Wow this was good! Too bad I forgot to add the green onions and cilantro though since it may have helped even more. I think next time I'll use the same stovetop method as #45809 Bourbon Chicken since I think it looks a bit nicer when the chicken is browned. Thanks!
