2 cloves garlic, minced
2 slices of fresh ginger, about 1-by-2 inches, cut into matchstick-size pieces
1/2 teaspoon sugar
3-4 tablespoons dry sherry
3 tablespoons soy sauce
2 whole star anise
2 dried Chinese chile peppers broken into halves
1 cup chicken broth, low salt preferred

1/3 cup lemon juice
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch mixed well with 2 tablespoons cold water
1 green onion, cut to 1-inch pieces

Remove excess fat and cut chicken into serving pieces, bone-in.
If you wish, remove all skin. Prepare blended mixtur. Line claypot
with cabbage, add 1/3 cup cold water. Prepare lemon sauce by
combining lemon juice and brown sugar in a small saucepan. Cook
over medium heat until sugar dissolves. Add 1/2 of the cornstarch
mixture until the sauce is thick. Remove from heat.

Place wok over high heat until hot. Add vegetable oil, swirling to
coat sides. When the oil is hot, brown chicken pieces on all sides.
Transfer chicken to a large claypot lined with cabbage leaves. Add
blended mixture. Stir to mix well. Add chicken broth. Place claypot
on range top, and raise heat gradually to a near boil, stirring
gently. Cover and simmer over low heat for 45 minutes. Add cornstarch
mixture. Stir in lemon sauce. If sauce is too thick, add a small
amount of water. If it's too thin, add more cornstarch mixture.
Garnish with green onions. Bring claypot to the table to serve.
