SHOYU CHICKEN - Bachelor Style
submitted by Richard Urata
This is a simple recipe for making shoyu (soy sauce) chicken. Bachelor style of cooking. Throw everything in a pot and forget about it for 1/2 to 1 hour.
Place the chicken thighs into a pan with the oil and brown the chicken pieces. After all the pieces are brown, drain the oil.
NOTE: Bachelor's style of draining oil. With two pot holders, one for each hand, cover the pot by placing the cover slightly off centered. This will allow a gap between the pot edge and the cover. While holding the cover in place, tilt the pot and drain the oil into another container, like a used can that you can throw into the trash. Do not pour the oil down the drain.
Add all the other ingredients and depending on your preference on the chicken texture, simmer for 1/2 for firm meat texture or simmer for 1 hour for loose meat texture.
Chicken can be eaten with rice. Also use as burrito filler.
