Combine chicken stock and star anise in Cuisinart® Fondue Pot. Set temperature at Setting 6 and bring to a boil. Reduce to Setting 3-½ and simmer for about 10 minutes. Trim and discard any visible fat and cartilage from the chicken. Cut into one-inch pieces. Using a clean knife and Prep Board, cut peppers into strips about 1½-x-½-inch. Cut zucchini into ½-inch thick rounds. To serve, skewer pieces of chicken and cook until firm and cooked through in simmering broth. Take care to cook poultry through completely; this will take about 3 minutes. Skewer vegetables and cook to taste. May be served with a bowl of steamed rice for each diner. Add additional warm chicken stock to the Fondue Pot as needed to keep the liquid deep enough for dipping and cooking.
