Directions

1. Rinse chicken and pat dry; set aside. In a 4- to 5-quart (3,8- to 5-liter) pan with a tight-fitting lid, combine 4 cups (950 ml) water, broth, chili powder, sugar, oregano, and anise seeds. Bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Remove pan from heat and immediately add chicken. Cover pan and let stand until meat in thickest part is no longer pink; cut to test (15 to 20 minutes; do not uncover until ready to test). If chicken is not done, return it to hot water, cover, and let steep for 2 to 3 more minutes
2. Drain chicken, reserving 2 cups (470 ml) of the cooking liquid. Return reserved liquid to pan. Bring to a boil over high heat; boil until reduced to 1/2 cup (120 ml), watching closely to prevent scorching
