Very simple chicken thigh recipe. You just throw it all into a pot and cook! It has a great flavor to boot.


  1. In a pot, put bouillon cube, water, soy sauce, brown sugar, ginger and garlic.
  2. Heat until boiling when sugar and cube are dissolved.
  3. Add chicken and cover. Turn down heat but continue a light boil until chicken is cooked thoroughly, about 25 minutes.
  4. Take out chicken and serve.
  5. **I add a little cornstarch/water mixture to the soy sauce sometimes to thicken it a bit if I want to serve it over rice.
  6. Freezer Directions: Prepare marinade and allow to cool. Place chicken in large freezer back. Pour cooled marinade over chicken. Seal, label, and freeze. To Serve: Thaw in fridge and cook as directed.

I made this into a dump recipe and put it in the freezer. I followed the recipe exactly as written other then I used light soy sauce instead of soy sauce. I made the marinade and cooled. I placed it in a freezer bag. I then added the thighs and froze. I also made another batch but followed the directions as written and ate it that night. The night before making the batch I put in the freezer, I pulled and let it thaw in the fridge. In the morning, I dumped everything in the crock pot and cooked for six hours. This may sound funny but the smell of this is a bit overwhelming and doesn't smell the best but the taste is awesome. I made this for freezer tag 2008.

Very good! Easy to do and with one pot! I also used leftover teriyaki sauce a second time with a boneless turkey breast and it was still good! Great recipe!
