Slow Cooker Shoyu Chicken

I adapted this recipe from the one found in the Allrecipe website.  It used pork belly instead of chicken and entailed an additional step of boiling the pork first. This recipe is an easier one using chicken instead. No initial boiling needed.  As the site mentioned the proportion of sugar to the other ingredients is perfect. The chicken with the sweet and salty sauce is amazing with rice.  Simple and delicious.

Slow Cooker Shoyu Chicken

  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup mirin
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tsp ginger powder
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1.5 lb chicken legs
Place all the ingredients except the chicken in the slow cooker and mix. 

Place the chicken over the sauce.

Cook for 3 hours at high setting or 6 hours at low. I cooked mine for 2 hours in an Aroma Brand rice cooker/slow cooker at slow cooker setting.

Serve over rice.
