We loved this. I had no idea such wonderful flavors could come out of only soy sauce and onions. Not to mention a cheaper piece of meat. This chicken is simply wonderful. Thanks!

I halved the recipe for 2 people, so I'm not sure if that's why my chicken turned out the way it did. Using 4 chicken thighs, it called for 1/4 cup of soy sauce (I used Kikkoman's Reduced Sodium) and the recipe called for only 1/8 cup of water. I thought that sounded like too little, so I used 1/4 cup. As it cooked, the water evaporated quickly, so I would add a bit more here and there as I saw fit. I covered the pan and left it to simmer for 5 minutes and then checked up on it, only to find that the water cooked off again and the soy sauce was beginning to burn. I had the stove on medium-low as instructed, so I don't know why it burned so quickly. I didn't spoon the sauce over the chicken at the end (because it had burned a bit) but the actual flavor of the chicken turned out fine. Not sure if I will use this recipe again, but thank you for posting it anyway.

Great stuff with so few, and such cheap ingredients. I did add a bit more water, which I then cooked off, to avoid sticking. I served this with Chinese noodles, but it would also be good with regualr pasta and a green vegetable, or amybe even with mashed potatoes. You need to like onions to like it, but it is a winner.

Absolutely delicious! The hardest part was chopping all the onions without crying! We had enough left over for a second meal and it tasted even better reheated.

I was utterly shocked at how well these turned out, with so few ingredients. This is the most clearly written recipe I have tried yet. My chicken did stick in the pan, but I think the problem was a combination of my pan and my stove - the method should have worked. The chicken was great - the onions were divine. I am thinking of modifying this for sliced onions to top steak.
