Recipe by Lady Dancer
A light version of this popular dish. This one will get rave reviews and presents very well. The recipe was served with sugar snap pea pods so those are included with the recipe as an option. I had never cooked with anise seeds and was very surprised at the result. I did substitute 1 t of ground ginger for the fresh ginger and was very pleased with the result. Enjoy!

This was very tasty. I cheated and skipped the broiling. I just boiled the sauce down as the chicken cooked. The sauce didn't turn out as pretty as it could have, but it was dang tasty. I also didn't have any anise seed, but put in a few drops of anise extract. Served with the steamed snap peas and rice.

- 1⁄2 cup water
