I started by adding a splash of olive oil to a medium saucepan and a skillet and heating both over medium/high heat. To the skillet I added the chicken breasts and browned them on both sides (this took 8-10 minutes), and set them aside.
Meantime, I added the onion and garlic to the saucepan and sauteed just until soft. Then I added the tomatoes, vinegar, star anise, cayenne, and sugar and brought the mixture to a boil. The heat was reduced to a simmer and the sauce reduced, uncovered, for 15 minutes. I stirred occasionally and set my oven to 375 degrees (F).
I grabbed my largest casserole dish and filled it with the sauce, pulling out and discarding the star anise. Then the chicken breasts were nestled into the sauce and the whole thing was popped in the oven for 30 minutes.
I served this on a bed of spinach. But rice, pasta, or polenta would be nice too.
