Shoyu Chicken



3-4 lb. whole chicken or
2-4 chicken breasts
1/2 c. soy sauce (shoyu)
1/2 c. water (1/2 c. clear soda)
3 T. brown sugar
1 slice crushed ginger or
1 1/2 t. minced ginger

Marinate chicken in a pot with all of the ingredients as little as 30 minutes or as long as overnight. Turn over once while marinating. Bring to a boil & simmer with cover on pot for 25-30 minutes or until tender. Turn chicken over once while simmering to brown evenly. Cool, then chop into small pieces & arrange on platter, or shred--however you prefer & serve over sticky rice!

You can also place this meal in the crock pot. You can skip the marinating step. Place all ingredients into the crockpot in the morning. Cook on low. Turn chicken a few times. It will be done by evening!
