Here’s a recipe that just has to be on my top 5 list of chicken recipes. I’m not really sure where this recipe is origin but it’s like in between Japanese and Hawaiian dish. Living in Japan for awhile I have seen this recipe in any restaurants or super markets. So I’m guess people in Hawaii had a simple idea taking minimum Japanese ingredients and made a simple chicken dish out of it. Shoyu Chicken is so simple that it only uses 3 ingredients and take about 40 minutes or less to make. If you have a chance to make this let us know how it turned out for you. Enjoy
- Get your frying pan with the stove at medium high, add your shoyu sauce, brown sugar, water, and grated ginger. Mix the brown sugar around until dissolve in the sauce.
- When the sauce is hot enough add your chicken into the pan and cook for 15 minutes on each side depending on your stove. I usually cook for 10 minutes on one side then flip over for 10 minutes then 5 minutes again on each side. The longer you cook the chicken in the sauce you will have the chicken nice and soft and breaking apart.
- You done serve on plate with some salad and rice.
- Note: You can also cook this with chicken on the bone. After cooking the meat will fall off the bone and melt in your mouth.
