Diet.Chef's picture
Ingredients
  Skinless boneless chicken breast halves 15 Ounce (3 Breast Halves, 5 Ounce Each)
  Reduced-sodium chicken broth 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Water 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Star anise 1
  Whole black peppercorns 5
  Fresh ginger piece 1 (Quarter Size)
  Fresh lime juice 3 Tablespoon
  Rice vinegar 2 Tablespoon
  Jalapeno pepper 1 , seeded and minced (Wear Gloves When Handling To Prevent Irritation)
  Reduced-sodium soy sauce 1 Tablespoon
  Garlic 2 Clove (10 gm), minced
  Sugar 2 Teaspoon
  Minced peeled fresh ginger 2 Teaspoon
  Napa cabbage 1 Pound, very thinly sliced (1 Medium Head)
  Onion 1⁄3 , very thinly sliced
  Yellow bell pepper 1 , seeded and cut into thin strips
Directions

1. Combine the chicken, broth, water, star anise, peppercorns, and ginger slice in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat, cover, and simmer until the chicken is nearly cooked through, about 7 minutes. Remove from the heat and let stand, covered, 7 minutes more. Drain the chicken, reserving the liquid for another use. When the chicken is cool enough to handle, shred into bite-size strips.
2. Meanwhile, whisk together the lime juice, vinegar, jalapeno pepper, soy sauce, garlic, sugar, and minced ginger in a large bowl; add the cabbage, onion, and bell pepper and toss. Add the chicken and toss again. Serve immediately, or cover and chill up to 2 hours ahead.
