June 2010 Meal #13: Shoyu Chicken

Meal #13 was Shoyu Chicken and it is a really easy meal to make.  It only takes about 5-10 minutes to prepare and about 30-45 minutes cooking time.  You can use a cut up whole chicken but I prefer to use drumettes or thighs for the juicy and tender meat. There are different variations on making shoyu chicken but all it really takes is shoyu, ginger, and sugar as part of the main components.  Here is a recipe I used from the Moanalua High School Project Graduation 2006 fundraising cookbook since this one in particular I already had laying out to plan next months menu plan.

2-3 lbs. chicken wings or thighs
1 cup water
1 cup shoyu (Aloha brand preferred)
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. sesame oil
3 to 4 cloves grated ginger, to taste
minced garlic, to taste
sesame seeds, optional
chopped green onions

Combine all ingredients in a large pot, except green onions.  Bring to a boil.  Lower heat and simmer 30-45 minutes (until chicken is soft).  Sprinkle with green onions and serve.
