"Very, very easy! Chicken with soy sauce and Worcestershire. My mom used to make it so often that it won this funny title. Serve with white rice to pour the extra juice over." — MMHASTY

4 (6 ounce)
skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
There is nothing "normal" about this chicken! Amazing. I added 1/2 cup brown sugar as recommended and am SO glad I did. My presentation turned out beautiful. Rice, broccoli, chicken right on top, drizzled with the sauce... When my husband bit into his chicken all he could say was "Wow"! He wasn't expecting so much flavor, and neither was I. This ones a keeper. For kicks I made egg drop soup to make this more of a chinese type meal.
Nothing special here. It was easy but will not be added to my rotation
I have been using this recipe for years, the only difference is I use boneless skinless chicken brest, and I add at least 1 Cup of BROWN SUGAR to the recipe as it is cooking, this makes it EXTRA YUMMY!!!!!
This was a great chicken recipe.
Very easy and will make again! I followed what others had written and browned the chicken in about 1T Olive oil first. I also decreased the soy sauce to 2T, added 1T of rice wine vin., 1T chopped garlic and 1T onion powder. I made everything on the stove top. After chicken browned, I turned the heat to med., added sauce ingr. and covered the pot. I cooked the bone-in chicken pieces for approx. 20 min., turning chicken a couple of times.
Easy and delicious, I added 1 cup of brown sugar and served the sauce over rice and broccoli everyone loved it!! I will definitely be making this one again!!
Update: This is a very good base recipe. However, I was scared that it would lack the flavor I was looking for, so I tweaked it a bit. First, I seasoned the split breasts with garlic powder, ground ginger powder, kosher salt, and black pepper. For the marinade I used 4 TB of soy sauce, 2 TB of Worcestershire sauce, 1/4 cup of brown sugar, 2 fresh garlic cloves (grated), a small piece of fresh ginger (also grated), and topped the dish with fresh pineapple (cubed). OMG, talk about good! The gravy that was made from this dish was delicious with white rice! Made a yummy Asian-style dinner.
The best recipe I know of with this number of ingredients -- so simple, in fact, that I've memorized it for those occasions when I have to cook and I have no access to a recipe book/file/website. I add sliced carrot and parsnips, and they come out perfectly in the time the chicken takes to bake. Thanks for this!
Wonderful, wonderful recipe. So easy, so good. I did increase each sauce by 1 tablespoon and added approximately 1/4 of brown sugar. This made a wonderful au jus. Definitely a part of my cooking rotation. My husband absolutely raved and so did I. Thanks for offering such a simple, yet tasty dish!
