Very good! Nice sauce develops while cooking, crusty and colorful glaze on the chicken, wonderful over rice. Super easy and super flavorful.

Shoyu Chicken is always welcome in this house and this is a good recipe for it. The chicken is fall-apart tender and has a nice red-brown glaze to it. A bed of white rice underneath and a tablespoon of green onions on top completed our plate. Made for Pick A Chef, April 09.
