Oven-Roasted Star Anise and Cinnamon Chicken

Skip to the recipe

There’s not a lot of complicated fiddling around to make this chicken – it’s pretty much as basic as Paleo recipes get. Take some protein, add some spices and oil, apply heat until cooked. But it doesn’t need a lot of complicated fiddling, because it’s good exactly as it is.

  • Prep: 10 m
  • Cook: 30 m
  • Total: 40 m
  • Servings:


  • 4 chicken breasts boneless, skinless
  • 1/3 cup coconut aminos
  • 1/4 cup chicken stock
  • 4 tbsp honey raw (optional)
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp ginger fresh, minced
  • 3 star anise
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1/4 tsp ground fennel seed
  • salt
  • pepper


  1. To make the marinade, whisk together all the ingredients except for the chicken, and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  2. Place the chicken breasts with the marinade, and marinate for 2 to 4 hours. (To save dishes, you could do this in an oven-safe dish, like Pyrex)
  3. Preheat your oven to 400 F.
  4. If your marinating container wasn’t oven-safe, transfer the chicken breasts to a baking dish with the remaining marinade.
  5. Bake in the oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until cooked through and no longer pink, basting every 10 minutes.
