Three Cup Chicken (San Bei Ji)

Recipe by Kree6528

This is a simple version of a traditional Taiwanese dish. This recipe has been a favorite in my family since my aunt introduced it to us years ago! Prep time includes time to clean the chicken breasts.

This was a very good recipe. Excellent because it's so simple and easy. I used low sodium soy sauce (all I had) and cooking white wine. Also used skin on, bone in chicken. The chicken kept the flavor of the sauce wonderfully so it was very tasty and moist.


  1. Place chicken in a saucepan.
  2. Pour oil, soy sauce, and wine over chicken; bring to a boil.
  3. Reduce heat; cover and simmer until chicken is tender, approximately 40 minutes.
