Shoyu Chicken

This is another great recipe for those nights when you want something great to eat but don't have a lot of time to slave over a hot stove. The best part is that it only takes about 30 min. from start to finish and can all be made in one pot. So, no extra dishes. Really, you can't get any easier than that.

All you have to do is combine the sauce ingredients in a pot, throw in some chicken pieces, fresh or frozen (chicken breast tenders or thighs work best) and just let it all boil until it's cooked through. That's it. So easy, even a child could do it. Then, serve it up with some rice and vegetables and you've got a dinner that will be requested time and again.

Shoyu Chicken

boneless, skinless chicken breast tenders or thighs
1 c. soy sauce
1 c. sugar
1/4-1/2 c. water (depending on how strong you want the sauce)
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. ginger powder (or fresh, sliced ginger)
1 tsp. red chile flakes (optional)
green onions, chopped

Combine the ingredients for the sauce and whisk together in the pot. Add in the chicken pieces. (if needed, double the recipe for the sauce to cover all the chicken). Cook on high heat until it reaches a boil. Then, turn down to medium heat and let it simmer for 20-30 min. until chicken is cooked through.¤t=Plumpy2button.jpg
