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.

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!
