On lazy days when I don’t want to fire up my wok and make a traditional Chinese stir-fry or wok cooking, I always make use of my oven to prepare easy and breezy meals. One of my favorite things to make is Chinese chicken parcels, marinated and wrapped with aluminum foil and baked in the oven.

The end results are always so tempting and mouthwatering: the aroma as soon as you unwrap the foil, the juicy and tender chicken meat, and the exotic smell of the star anise. Fresh off the oven and after the parcels cool off, I usually shred the chicken into pieces, and eat with fresh steamed rice. The juice from the chicken parcel is so good with rice, and the chicken makes every mouthful of the rice oh-so-yummy. As I am writing this post, the thought of the chicken parcel is enough to set my stomach rumbling.

If you are not familiar with star anise, it’s a spice shaped like a star, with a flavor that closely resemble anise. It’s a very important spice in many Chinese recipes, and you can get them easily in any spice aisle now. Make sure that you buy the whole star anise, and not the star anise powder, as they are commonly used in whole instead of powder form. If you think the aroma of the star anise is a little overwhelming for your taste, feel free to cut down the quantity used. Have fun cooking this Chinese chicken parcels recipe and enjoy the meal!
