In large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; brown chicken, about 10 minutes. Transfer to plate; pour off fat in pan.

Reduce heat to medium. Add 1 cup (250 mL) water, soy sauce, vinegar, garlic, ginger, star anise, bay leaves, pepper, cinnamon, cloves and carrots; bring to boil. Return chicken to pan; reduce heat, cover and simmer until juices run clear when chicken is pierced, 20 to 25 minutes.

In small bowl, mix cornstarch with 1 tbsp (15 mL) water. Push chicken aside; increase heat to medium-high and stir cornstarch mixture into sauce. Boil until thickened, about 1 minute. Discard bay leaves. Sprinkle with green onions.
