Step 1Start by making the stock. Fill a large saucepan with water (or chicken stock for more flavor). Add the chicken breasts, one cloves of sliced garlic, one peeled and quartered onion, one 2-inch (5 cm) piece of sliced ginger and one star anise.
Step 2Bring to a boil and cover with a lid. Simmer for 10 to 12 minutes, and then take off the heat.
