Print this Recipe    Shoyu


1/2 cup shoyu (soy sauce)
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup sugar

grated fresh ginger
chopped garlic
chopped green onion tops

2 lbs chicken thighs and/or legs

In a bowl, combine the soy sauce, water, sugar, ginger, garlic,
green onion tops.

The chicken can be prepared in four different ways. The chicken
can be boiled or simmered in the sauce til done. It can be baked
in the sauce til done. The sauce and chicken can be put in a crockpot
for 4 to 6 hours (or til done). Or, the chicken can marinate
overnight in the sauce (in the refrigerator) and then grilled,
basting with the sauce. I have always either made it in a crock
pot or grilled it.

The sauce is also great with beef.

Note: smooth Hawaiian soy (like Aloha Shoyu) is best, if it can be
found. Off-the-shelf Stateside brands (like Kikoman) give it a
harsher flavor.

This recipe was great, although I added a can of sliced pinapple. I used the juice from the can of pinapple to sub for the water and sugar and reduced the soy sauce to 1/4 c. because all I had available was Kikkoman. I also marinated the pinapple slices and grilled them with the chicken. Fabulous!!!

I don't spend much time in the kitchen (you could say that I'm cooking challenged). I had to feed 30 people at a barbecue. This recipe is EASY and DELICIOUS! If I can make, it anyone can - it must be foolproof. I had several people ask me for the recipe. Thank you whoever contributed it...
