Five Spice Chicken with Vermicelli, Mushrooms and Fennel
Chinese five spice powder is a wonderful spice combination that has been used for centuries and traditionally has Szechwan peppercorns, star anise, cloves, cinnamon and anise or fennel seeds that are ground into a complex spice mix. You can find it at most grocery stores. The chicken is served over rice vermicelli (noodles), but if you don’t have them on hand, you can use spaghetti, fettuccine or angel hair pasta, or even serve the chicken over rice. The chicken is sprinkled with the five spice powder and cooked and set aside. The veggies cook together quickly and you sauté green onion, garlic, ginger, mushrooms, collard greens, fennel and when they have browned, make a sauce with hoisin and soy sauce. It makes a delicious and healthy week night dinner and takes less than 30 minutes to cook, always a plus. Click here for recipe….
