Soy-Simmered Chicken

This is another fabulously easy recipe from Donna Hay. It takes perhaps 10-15 minutes from start to finish, and it's very tasty. The Asian flavours are really nice and pronounced and the sauce is perfect over boiled rice. It smells amazing too.

Soy-Simmered Chicken
from Modern Classics Book 1 by Donna Hay

2 tsp sesame oil
1 tbs shredded ginger
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 tbs brown sugar
1/2 cup Chinese cooking wine or dry sherry
2 star anise
1 cinnamon stick
4 chicken breast fillets

Place the sesame oil, ginger, soy sauce, sugar, Chinese cooking wine, star anise and cinnamon stick in a frying pan over medium-low heat and bring to a simmer. Add the chicken and cook for 6-7 minutes each side or until cooked through. Serve on plates with sauce from the pan, steamed greens and rice.
