Shoyu Chicken

I have had this in my recipe book for awhile now and decided to make it today. I had some frozen crushed pineapple in my freezer, so I used that. It was good. Everyone ate it. I served it with Jasmine rice and Snow peas and they even ate the peas with the sauce on it!! It was super easy to make, too! It really hit the spot for me tonight. I was hungry for a supper like this!

The Menu:
Shoyu Chicken



The Original Recipe:
I found this on my favorite site!

SHOYU CHICKEN (Soy Sauce Chicken)
(Hokiesmom)

1 cup soy sauce

1 cup pineapple juice

1/4 cup brown sugar

2 teas. wine

1 piece ginger (crushed)

2 large cloves of garlic (mashed)

3 pounds - skinless chicken thighs - cut in half or thirds (boneless)

Mix above ingredients well, add chicken. Bring to a boil and lower to simmer. Cook slowly until chicken is TENDER.


The Way I Made It My Own:
Of course I changed a few things! I ran out of soy sauce so I used some teryiaki .. and put it in the crockpot and added some cornstartch/water mixture to thicken it... MMM!!

SHOYU CHICKEN (Soy Sauce Chicken)



3/4 cup soy sauce (low sodium)

1/4 cup teryiaki sauce

1 cup crushed pineapple with juice

1/4 cup brown sugar

2 teas. white wine

1 piece ginger (crushed)

2 large cloves of garlic (mashed)

4 bonless skinless chicken breasts, cubed

1 tbls. cornstartch mixed with some water so you do not see any clumps

Mix above ingredients well. Add chicken and sauce in crockpot. Cook on low 8 hours or until chicken is done. Add cornstartch mixture and stir. It should thicken up. Serve.
