It’s the star

Ying-Ling, my Chinese cooking teacher, babied some Chinese spareribs spooning the liquidy soy sauce mixture over and over the ribs. A beautiful star anise was floating in the marinade. As it drank in the sauce it sank down giving off it’s fragrant flavor. Before long the ribs were tender and infused with garlic, ginger, soy sauce and star anise.

My introduction to star anise was almost 30 years ago. It’s been a staple in my spice cupboard ever since. Star Anise is the anchor of Five Spice Powder, also a staple in my kitchen. The other four spices are cloves, Roasted Five Spice Chicken on PlatterChinese cinnamon, Sichuan pepper and fennel. Some mixtures contain ginger, nutmeg or turmeric. It’s spicy but not hot, non-domestic but accessible. It’s a good way to influence roasted meat with star anise flavor because it mixes easily into a rub or sauce and has complexity and depth. Roast a Chinese Five Spice Chicken and serve with steamed rice and crunchy, cool cucumber spears.

5 Place the chicken skin side up on the prepared baking sheet. Roast in a 375 degree oven until the internal temperature of the chicken is 165 degrees, or about 45 minutes. Remove from the oven, loosely tent with foil and allow to rest for 10 minutes. Cut in pieces and serve.

If you don’t have a grill pan, place rubbed five spice chicken in the oven without grilling. The outside will become a rich golden brown while roasting.

This Chinese Five Spice Chicken could also be grilled on a barbecue. Sear grill marks on the skin side in a hot area of the BBQ then place in a lower heat area to roast until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees. Tent with foil or close lid for even cooking.

Serve with steamed rice, pickled cucumbers, corn on the cob, sliced tomatoes, Watermelon with Lime or Mandarin Orange Slaw with Sesame Dresssing.

This wet rub also makes terrific wings. Place 12 wings in a bowl and add wet rub. Toss with your hands to coat wings. Bake on a non-stick foil-lined baking sheet at 425 degrees for 35-40 minutes turning once half way through.
