Shoyu Chicken

Dish: Entrees
Dish Type: Meats
Cooking Method: Poached
Difficulty: 1 / 10
Servings: 4
Prep Time: 10 min
Cook Time: 30 min

  • 1 cup - soy sauce
  • 1 cup - brown sugar
  • 1 cup - pineapple juice
  • 2 lb - chicken drummettes

Combine soy sauce, brown sugar and pineapple juice in large saucepan and stir.  Add in chicken drummettes (the drumstick part of a chicken wing) and bring to a simmer.

Let simmer for 30 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.  Serve with steamed rice or as a finger food.



This is an amazingly easy recipe that is delicious.  I love the method because you just use equal amounts of all the sauce ingredients.  It makes it super easy to make a large amount for a potluck.
