This cheap and easy dish consists of tender, melt-in-your mouth chicken wings cooked in soy sauce. The addition of ginger, cinnamon and star anise make this dish smell absolutely heavenly. Best of all it is an economical dish made in one pot with only 15 minutes prep time.
Heat the oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat.
Fry the ginger, garlic, cinnamon and star anise for about one minute or until fragrant.
Add the light soy sauce, dark soy sauce, cooking wine, water and sugar. Give everything a stir, then add the chicken.
Bring to the boil, then cook over low heat for 40 mins (Note 2). Skim off any foam that rises to the surface.
About halfway through cooking flip the chicken pieces at the top of the pot to ensure they are evenly coloured.
Once cooked, remove the chicken and set aside. Strain the liquid, then check the flavour and adjust if required (Note 3).
Return the chicken to the pot and serve with steamed white rice and Asian greens.
