How to make Soya Sauce Chicken / 醬雞

This was one of my favourite dishes when I was little. It's full of flavour and a little drizzle of the left over sauce on rice is just amazing!

  1. Place the chicken in a saucepan. The chicken should just cover the base of the sauce pan in one layer, and add the ginger, onion and sugar.

  2. Add enough soya sauce so it barely covers the base of the pan, then add some water till about couple of centimetres deep.

  3. Place the pan over very low heat and let it cook slowly. Turn the chicken over every 5 - 10 min till cooked, so it picks up the wonderful colour.

  4. Serve with some nice stir fried greens, and rice!

    hmmm yum i like the sound of this... would normal sugar work as well as the Rock stuff? maybe brown sugar...?

    I just googled quickly and found that you CAN indeed sub with granulated sugar. It is just that granulated sugar is sweeter than rock sugar, so for a small pan I would probably use couple of teaspoons?! Just got to experiment I guess. :)

    You use the dark or light soya sauce?

    I used the standard Chinese soya sauce like Kikkoman. I think they give better flavour than the light / dark western versions.
