Shoyu Chicken

If my children had one “go to” meal that they could eat every week, it would be this one. I am not sure what it is about this chicken, but folks absolutely LOVE it. It has a salty sweetness and the ginger adds a unique savor to the dish. I hope it will become a family favorite of yours as well.
