Five-spice powder is a spice used often in Chinese cooking, but it’s a mixture of cinnamon, cloves, fennel seed, star anise and szechuan peppercorns. It is now commonly found in all grocery stores in the spice section and yields lots of unique but delicious flavors. If you don’t eat pork, this recipe works great with thinly sliced chicken breasts. Serve with rice, Asian noodles or steamed broccoli and a salad for a complete weeknight meal.
