Makes 4 Servings
(2 thighs per serving)
8 boneless, skinless chicken thighs
(use half of this blend for this recipe. Save the rest for another batch)
4 whole star anise (ground) you can use 1 tablespoon of ground allspice if you don't have
2 teaspoons of ground black pepper
2 tablespoons of brown sugar
1 tablespoon of kosher salt or to taste
1 tablespoon of garlic powder
1 tablespoon of onion powder
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
Preheat oven to 400F.
In a small bowl, combine all of the ingredients until blended. Set aside.
Rub the chicken thoroughly onto the chicken thighs. (You can let it sit for a few hours for deeper flavor.)
Place the rubbed chicken onto a lightly oiled sheet pan. Place into the oven and cook for 25-30 minutes or until juices run clear. Serve.
