Day 5 - Shoyu Chicken

This recipe brings back a lot of memories of a friend who used to make this dish to serve many of us at church.  His cooking brought so many together and his selflessness in cooking for so many often times went overlooked.  He was never one to bring attention to himself.  He has since moved back to Hawaii and his fellowship, along with his delicious meals are greatly missed. 


1 C         Soy sauce
2 C         Water
1 C         Sugar
1 1/2lbs  Chicken (I use legs and thighs, bone-in and skin on)
1/2 Tbsp Fresh ginger, minced
2 cloves  Garlic, minced

Mix all ingredients, except chicken in a pan and bring to a boil.  Add chicken, reduce heat, and simmer until the chicken starts to fall off the bone.
Serve with steamed rice.

Keeping the skin on and the bone in gives it much more flavor.  For a healthier alternative, you could cook with boneless, skinless chicken.

Simple and very delicious!  My kids love to soak their rice in the Shoyu sauce.

  1. Hi! I think I just read through half of your blog. Barb had told me about your dad. It sounds like he is a very strong man. I love that you are able to see the positive and live your life accordingly.

    So glad we can still see each other through our blogs.
