    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!

    This is delicious! I love the oriental flavor to this. It was an easy recipe to make. Perfect served over rice, using the sauce to juice it up. Thanks for sharing this recipe, Kree!

I'm a real estate agent in the lovely city of Rochester, New York. That's not what I expected to do with my life. I got my bachelor's in psychology, my masters in literacy education, and I taught high school special education for two years. Then I discovered that helping people find the homes of their dreams was my real passion. I've been doing it for over two years now and still absolutely love my career. Other than that, I have a very spoiled Border Collie mix named Bear that I adopted from a local shelter in spring '08. He's gorgeous and fun and brings me great joy. Now if only I could find a man like that... LOL!
