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.

Add all the ingredients in a pot and heat until all the sugar melted.
Let it cool. Transfer to a container and store in refrigerator. I left the garlic in the sauce to further infuse the flavor.
