Soya Sauce Chicken is a local favourite - we find it in many eateries in Singapore and its typically served with rice or egg noodles which makes an extremely satisfying lunch. During Chinese New Year, my mother in law would also typically buy soya sauce chicken for the reunion dinner.
I've read that it isn't easy to braise a whole chicken in soya sauce, so this recipe with chicken legs is great for not so expert cooks like me. Besides I don't exactly relish the idea of chopping up a whole chicken so I'd much rather cook chicken parts where possible
It turned out to be really easy to make and I simply love how flavourful this chicken is after being stewed in the mixture of soya sauce, spices, herbs and rock sugar. The sauce was so good that we couldn't bear to throw it away so it was used for marinating and cooking tau pok and eggs the next day.
Soy Sauce Chicken (3 servings)
Recipe from Rasa Malaysia
- 2-inch ginger (skin peeled and lightly pounded)
- 4 cloves garlic (lightly pounded)
- 2 stalks scallions (cut into 2-inch lengths)
- 2 star anise
- 1 cinnamon stick (about 2-inch length)
- 1 dried honey date
- 1 cup soy sauce
- 1/2 cup dark soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon Chinese rose wine (preferred) or Shaoxing wine
- 3 dashes white pepper powder
- 4 oz. (113 g) rock sugar
- 4 cups water
- Add all ingredients (except the chicken) into a deep pot and bring it to boil on high heat for 15 minutes. Add the chicken quarters into the pot and boil over high heat for about 10 minutes.
- Lower the heat to simmer for about 30 minutes. Turn off heat and let the chicken steeped in the soy sauce mixture for a few hours to soak in the flavor.
- Dish out the chicken quarters, chop into pieces and serve immediately (Soy sauce chicken is usually served cold or at room temperature.)

Hi Mich, this looks super delicious! I've read that many cooks will keep the braising sauce - to add into the new batch of sauce. They say the aged sauce tastes better, wonder if that's true!ReplyDelete
