Shoyu Chicken


Here’s to more chicken recipes!!!

Obviously, chicken is the thing right now….

Did you know that shoyu means soy sauce? In Japanese culture it’s pretty much everything! This recipe is apparently very popular in Hawaii. It’s actually really good. The original recipe had cayenne in it as well, but I decided to omit it. It just wasn’t doing it for me. Instead I added more black pepper, which I find more tolerable. Everyone liked the recipe. I made corn and mixed veggies with it. Next time I’d like to have rice or maybe a pilaf with it. I also used low sodium soy sauce which was really good. I did need to add a little salt to it too though. Keep that in mind if you use low sodium soy sauce.

5 lbs Chicken thighs, skinless
4 cloves Garlic
1 tablespoon Ginger, fresh root
1/2 small Onion

1 cup Soy sauce
