Star Anise Chicken

This is a homey Chinese chicken dish that I like very much. I made it for you because I'm sure you will like it too. It is served mainly with steamed rice. Popular because it's so simple to make with very few ingredients. For 4 servings you need 10 pieces of chicken preferably drumsticks and thighs. I discard the skins and trim of any visible fat. Then you will need 5 pieces of star anise, 3 tablespoons of dark soy sauce, 3 tablespoons of dry sherry, 3 garlic  cloves and a nob of ginger crushed or pounded together. Two stalks of green unions and another one you set aside for garnishing. Last ingredient is 1 tablespoon of muscovado sugar.
Set aside the chicken and bring to a boil the rest of the ingredients together with half a cup of water for 10 minutes or until slightly reduced.
I take some of the solids out before I put the chicken to boil. After a vigorous boil, simmer for at least 20 minutes. Arrange them in a plater and garnish with shredded scallions.
