Soy Sauce Chicken

Soy Sauce Chicken

Being a working mother is a demanding full time job.  Wouldn’t the moms out there agree?  Not only do we stress ourselves about work, we also stress ourselves thinking about dinner, lunch…amongst many other things.

So, if you don’t have the time to prepare dinner, this simple dish is a quick fix meal simply by braising the chicken.  I love braising because it’s really just putting everything into a pot or a casserole dish and just let it cook in its juices and fragrant ingredients for 40-50 minutes…while I fret over my lil’ one to clean up her room 😉 Efficiently saving a lot of time and to be able to multi task.

You can use chicken drumstick or wings in this recipe.  I prefer the boney chicken parts where I can slurp and bite away tender fall-off-the-bone meats.  If you’re serving more people, you can use the whole chicken.  Best of all, the braising sauce can be eaten with rice.

Soy Sauce Chicken

Serves 4

20 chicken wings, separate drummettes and wings
1 cup soy sauce
3 cups water
5 cloves garlic, bruised
2 cinnamon stick
3 star anise
1 bunch scallion, chopped
2 tbsp sugar
2 inches ginger

1. Using a pot, heat the soy sauce, water and chicken over medium heat.  Once the soy sauce comes to a boil, immediately reduce it to a simmer.

2. Add the other ingredients like garlic, cinnamon stick, star anise, scallion, sugar and ginger.  Let it simmer on small fire for 40-50 minutes.  The longer you simmer, the darker the skin will be and the more tender the meat is.




    • Hi Rachel, I’ve not tried with boneless skinless thigh before but it should be ok to use it. Maybe try not to braise them too long so the meat won’t get dry. Let me know how it went?
