Chicken Star Anise

Spray some sunflower or safflower oil on a heavy-bottom pan and lightly brown your chicken (with the skin and the bones still on, and make sure that you’ve smeared a little salt on them). I used a couple of chicken wings.
Add a head of crushed garlic then leave to brown. Put in 3 heads of red onions (chopped) and cook till translucent.

At this point, you’ll want to move things on the side of the pan so you can add:

  • 4 bay leaves (crushed)
  • 3 pieces of star anise
  • a teaspoon and a half of all spice
    Mix them all. The dish will be really fragrant at this point.

    Pour in 2 tablespoons of soy sauce alternative (or regular soy sauce, if you’re allowed—my husband makes the soy-free variety—that way, I can still enjoy some of the soy sauce taste without having to pay a lot for it), and a cup of broth (either chicken or vegetable—gluten-free, of course; we just put in a cup of water). Cover the pan, set heat to low and wait for the liquid to reduce to half.

    Blend in 2 tablespoons of coconut sugar. Cook some more. Turn off the heat when the chicken is done. Eat with rice. You can also store it for later.
