Star Anise Chicken

In the South Arm Community Kitchen, Jane Duo made a Chinese chicken dish.  She calls it special chicken but I think it’s more proper to call ti Star Anise Chicken.  We decided to make some Chinese food upon the request of Blanca and other non Chinese members.   They specifically requested to learn how to stir fry bok choy which I will cover later.


This Star Anise Chicken is another very homey Chinese chicken dish.  It is flavours with star anise, ginger, soy sauce and sugar.


  • A whole chicken, cut into pieces or just drumsticks or wings.
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 inches ginger, sliced
  • 4 star anise
  • salt to taste
  • soy sauce
  • cooking wine
  • sesame oil


Jane pre-marinated the chicken with some soy sauce, cooking wine and sesame oil.
