3-5 lbs. chicken
½ C water
½ C shoyu
3 T brown sugar
1 slice crushed ginger
1 tsp. wine (optional)
1 small piece Star Anis (Chinese spice) (optional)
Place chicken in a large pot on the stove top or in a slow-cooker.
Combine remaining ingredients except for the chicken to make a sauce.
Stir sauce until sugar is dissolved.
Pour sauce over chicken and cook as follows:
Stove top: Bring to a low boil, cover and reduce heat to a simmer. Let cook for about 1 hour at a low simmer until the chicken is tender.
Crockpot Cooking: Cook on LOW for up to 8 hours or HIGH for 4 hours.
Remove chicken from cooking liquid, shred if desired and return to pan to soak up some more flavor.
Add flour to thicken and serve over rice.
