In the Islands, Soy Sauce is referred to as “shoyu”. So today I bring you Shoyu Chicken. This is insanely simple and delicious.
This dish requires little work. It also only uses 4 ingredients. I love this dish over a nice scoop of hot rice. It’s crazy to me how a lot of Asian inspired dishes use minimal ingredients, but boast so much flavor.
Prep Time: 10-15 minutes
Cook Time: 1 Hr 30 minutes (I like to let my simmer a while in the juice)
Serving Size: 4-6 People
4-6 Pieces of Chicken (any kind you like)
1 cup Shoyu (Soy Sauce again any brand you like I use a Korean Brand)
1 cup white sugar (or brown)
4 stalks of Green Onion
You want to get a large pot. Place all of your chicken in the pot. Cover with water. Bring to a boil. Once boiling, bring down to medium high heat and let simmer for about 30 minutes. Or until chicken becomes tender.
After 30 minutes or so. Start to remove chicken from the pot. As you can see, the meat has already started falling off the bone. The meat should be really tender by now. So remove whatever meat is left on the bone. Discard bones. You can shred chicken up a bit with a fork. Place chicken back in pot.
That’s it! Pour some of the juice over your chicken. This dish is perfect with rice. You can have it over the rice, or have it on the side. I made some mixed veggies to go with it. You can also add some more green onion as garnish. Go ahead Kau kau (eat)! Enjoy!
