This simple recipe for shoyu chicken comes straight from Hawaii. The recipe is courtesy of one of the most iconic grocery stores in Maui — Pukalani Superette which has been in business since 1955.
This recipe is courtesy of Sue Nakashima, second generation owner of Pukalani Superette.
- 5 Pounds chicken thighs – skin on
- 2 Cups Aloha Shoyu – that’s Hawaii's go-to brand but if you can’t get it any soy sauce will do
- 2 Cups white sugar
- 2 Tablespoons garlic, minced
- 1 Tablespoon ginger, minced
- 1/4 Cup sherry wine
Combine all ingredients and marinate for 24 hours
Bake chicken in marinating liquid at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes, or until the skins are golden brown.
This yields 24 pieces of chicken.
