 My Soy Sauce Chicken With Soy Honey Glaze


My Soy Sauce Chicken with Soy Honey Glaze – an irresistible fusion of savory and sweet that's bound to become a household favorite. I took a classic soy sauce chicken recipe and made it my own by adding ingredients I like and a sweet honey sauce. Adds more flavor to the dish. I freeze the braising liquid and honey sauce and make it with chicken thighs or legs at another time.

My Soy Sauce Chicken With Soy Honey Glaze

Cook time: 1 Hr 15 Min  Prep time: 1 Hr   Serves: 2-4

Ingredients
1 whole chicken
1 Tbsp peanut oil
7 slice ginger peeled
6 clove garlic smashed
4 scallions cut into 3 inch pieces
4 star anise
2 c soy sauce
1 1/2 c dark soy sauce
1/4 c each sweet soy sauce and fish sauce
2 Tbsp mirin
1 c sugar
7 c water
1/2 c honey
green parts of scallions for garnish
Directions
1. Rinse the chicken and remove any extra skin and fat. Let sit at room temp for 1 hour.
2. Add the oil to a large pot that is tall and narrow but big enough for the chicken. Add the ginger and let carmalize for 1 minute. Add the garlic and scallions and cook 30 seconds. Add the star anise, soy sauce, dark soy sauce, sweet soy sauce, fish sauce, mirin and sugar. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes. Add the water and bring to a boil once again.
3. Turn heat down to a slow boil. Add the chicken laying it into the liquid and fill the cavity with the liquid. Turn breast side down in the liquid and weight the chicken down with a heavy bowl to keep it totally submerged in the liquid. Keep it at a low boil skimming any impurites that comes to the surface.
4. Cook for 45 minutes. Turn the heat off and let sit in the liquid for 15 minutes. Remove the chicken to a carving bored.
5. Strain the liquid through a fine mesh strainer discarding solids. Add 2 cups of the strained liquid to a saucepan. Bring to a boil and reduce for 5 minutes. Stir in the honey and reduce another 5 minutes until it coats the back of a spoon. If it isn't thick enough make a slurry with cornstarch and water and whisk into the sauce.
6. Cut the chicken into pieces and add to plate. Drizzle a little soy honey sauce over the chicken and garnish with the greens of the scallions. Serve extra dipping sauce with chicken.
7. You can freeze the cooking liquid if you want and use again if you want.
