Crockpot Soy Sauce Chicken

We love Kikkoman Soy Sauce so much in this house and can literally go through a bottle in such a short amount of time! I also have a passion for creating new crockpot recipes and when Kikkoman offered the opportunity to work with them, I immediately started creating this Crockpot Soy Sauce Chicken recipe. I mean who can resist anything covered in soy sauce?
This dish is exactly what you think it would taste like, but has a slightly sweet flavor enhanced within. One of my goals here at Crockpot Empire is to make delicious dishes that are full of flavor, but with as minimal ingredients as necessary. Most of us are on budgets and time constraints, so I try to create meals that are satisfying and worthy without sacrificing flavor.
I will say that this isn’t a “true” representation of what Cantonese soy sauce chicken traditionally is, and the ingredients vary from various cultures, from spices like cinnamon, five spice powder and one to two pieces of star anise. I chose to keep it simple based upon my love for five ingredient or less crockpot cooking, so feel free to get creative and add in the above if you’re feeling fancy!
I chose to use chicken breasts and thighs to see if the flavor would be enhanced with the dark meat. I will say the combination of the two different meats paired well together, but you can use boneless chicken or all thighs depending upon your preference.
This slow cooked soy braised chicken is tender and not too overpowering. If you’re anything like Fred and me, you will choose to even add more soy sauce before eating! I am serious when I say we love our Kikkoman! I also use it as a main ingredient in this Crockpot Bourbon Chicken recipe that you can try, too!
I hope you are having an awesome week! I am headed to the beach tomorrow morning for a girl’s getaway and can’t wait to share all that we did while on #30A. What are you and your family up to this weekend? See you back here next week, and as always thanks for stopping by!
