Soy sauce chicken made easy with store bought soy sauce marinade.

I used the whole bottle for 5 skin-on, bone-in chicken thighs. I added 1 bowl of water to the pot, together with the chicken thighs, 2 cloves of garlic, 5 slices of ginger and 8 dried mushrooms.

Bring it to a boil then simmer on low for half an hour. The sauce is on a sweeter side so I added 1tbs of soy sauce and 1 tsp of salt to balance the sweetness. Add in frozen tofu and hard boiled eggs and simmer for another 15-20 mins.

Skim off the chicken fat on the surface and it’s ready to serve! The savory sauce is great with egg noodles too.

With 3 skinless and boneless chicken thighs, marinate with 2 bar of sauce for 30mins, then pan-fried until brown.

I like that the sauce is individually frozen, just pop out the sauce whenever I need and it taste amazing. I would marinate the chicken longer than the 30mins or even overnight to get the full flavor into the chicken.
