Oven-Roasted Star Anise and Cinnamon Chicken

Oven-Roasted Star Anise and Cinnamon Chicken

There’s not a lot of complicated fiddling around to make this chicken – it’s pretty much as basic as Paleo recipes get. Take some protein, add some spices and oil, apply heat until cooked. But it doesn’t need a lot of complicated fiddling, because it’s good exactly as it is. Recipe from Paleo Leap

Ingredients
  

  • 4 chicken breasts boneless, skinless
  • 1/3 cup coconut aminos
  • 1/4 cup chicken stock
  • 4 tbsp honey raw (optional)
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp ginger fresh, minced
  • 3 star anise
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1/4 tsp ground fennel seed
  • salt
  • pepper

Instructions
 

  • To make the marinade, whisk together all the ingredients except for the chicken, and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Place the chicken breasts with the marinade, and marinate for 2 to 4 hours. (To save dishes, you could do this in an oven-safe dish, like Pyrex)
  • Preheat your oven to 400 F.
  • If your marinating container wasn’t oven-safe, transfer the chicken breasts to a baking dish with the remaining marinade.
  • Bake in the oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until cooked through and no longer pink, basting every 10 minutes.
