    NcMysteryShopper's Note:

    This dish is actually best with Aguardiente de anís, a clear, anise-flavored brandy, that complements the cinnamon and other spices in this succulent chicken dish. Use dry aguardiente if you can find it or simply substitute Pernod. If you are using a larger skillet I would recommend doubling the first three ingredients, as the heated pan really reduces the liquid fast.
